Public Library Report 



TO THE CITIZENS OF ENFIELD: 

The Directors of the Enfield Library Association report 
another successful year, though perhaps there has been 
reading as the war and work for our soldiers has occupied the 
time, thought and energies of the whole community. Yet. the 
"Diectors" have noticed increasing interest and appreciation 
of good books. The older people realize the opportunity for 
study and the enjoyment of interesting reading which a< 
to this Library has brought them. While the younger read 
with pleasure and profit, books adapted to them, and most 
helpful in their education. More than two hundred and fifty 
dollars has been spent for new books and much time and thought 
given to the selection of the best, not only of the past year, but 
of standard works. 

The Association subscribes for the following magazines: 
Century, Atlantic Monthly. Scribner's. Harper's Monthly, 
Harper'- Bazar. Review of Reviews. Technical World. Popular 
Mechanic-. Scientific American. Youth's Companion. St Nicho- 
las, Woman'- Home Companion. Cosmopolitan, McClures, 
Good Housekeeping. American Magazine, Country Life. These 
furnish in themselves an interesting library on varied subjects. 



49 

Hearty thanks from the Association are due to Mrs. Susan 
J. Crane for her generous gift of books, and to friends who have 
contributed magazines or pamphlets. 

Through the Association twenty-one dollars and twenty- 
five cents was contributed to the fund for libraries at the Can- 
tonments, and a box of books sent to Camp Devens. 

The Librarian for the coming year is Mrs. C. Elmer Har- 
wood; Assistant Librarian, Mrs. Charles N. Downing. 

The Directors feel sure that the citizens of the town will be 
pleased to grant the usual appropriation and the income from 
the dog fund for the support of the Library, which certainly 
has proved of much benefit to the people of the town. 

A former president of Harvard College, Charles W. Elliot, 
says: "Books are the quietest and most constant of friends. 
They are the most accessible and wisest of counsellors, and the 
most patient of teachers. With his daily work and his books 
many a man whom the world thought forlorn has found life 
worth living. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MARION ANDREWS SMITH, 

President Enfield Library Association.

Report of School Committee 



With the opening of the present school year came two 
changes in our staff of teachers. Mr. Capen taking the place as 
principal of Mr. Dudley, who is now Lieutenant at Aver, and 
Miss Fortin succeeding Miss Kennedy in the primary grades. 
After many years of most satisfactory service the resignation 
of Miss Kennedy left a vacancy which seemed hard to fill, never 
theless both of the new teachers being experienced and enthusi- 
astic in their work have given the utmost satisfaction and won 
the respect of all. The work of the other teachers, being too well 
known to need comment, we feel that the schools are progressing 
on a high level, as shown by the standing attained by most of 
those who have gone from here to higher institutions, many 
being mentioned in the "honor" lists. 

We ask the co-operation of parents with us in securing harm- 
ony and best results so that Enfield's children may have a strong 
foundation upon which they may go out into the future, not 
fearful of the results of competition. 

WILLARD B. SEGUR, 

Chairman for the Committee.

School Superintendent's Report 



TO THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE OF ENFIELD:— 

I herewith submit for your consideration my tenth annual, 
report, which is the fourteenth in this series. 

ATTENDANCE 

The per cent of attendance for the school year ending 
June 30, 1917, was 94. There were 106 cases of tardiness, a larger 
per cent of which was caused by a few pupils. There were very 
few cases of tardiness that were excusable. I appeal to the 
parents to assist the teachers in correcting this bad habit, that 
a few of the children are forming. 

TEACHERS 

At the close of the spring term Mr. Leland Dudley, teacher 
of the Grammar school, resigned, to enlist in the army, and 
Miss Rachael Kennedy, who has been an unusually successful 
teacher in the schools of Enfield for a number of years, resigned 
her positon as teacher of the primary school. Her resignation 
was deeply regretted by the school officials, the children and 
their parents. 



56 

Mr. Arthur Capeu. a teacher of successful experience, was 
elected teacher of the grammar school, and Miss Blanche Fortin 
was placed in charge of the primary grades. 

Mrs. Florence Clough.te acher of music, was given a year'.- 
leave of absence from Sept. 1, 1917. The regular teachers have 
carried on the work in music with results much better than could 
be. expected. Some of our teachers have had training in that 
line of work. 

HIGH SCHOOL PUPILS 

There are twenty-two Enfield pupils who are attending 
high school, thirteen in Athol, three in Belchertown. two in 
Springfield, threp in New Salem and one in Ware. These pupils 
are doing satisfactory work and seem to appreciate the privilege 
of securing a high school education. 

The town of Enfield, according to the state report just re- 
ceived, expended per SI 000 valuation for school support from 
local taxation for the year ending Dec. 31. 1916, $4.61. This 
would entitle the town to receive from the state one-half the 
amount expended for transportation. A copy of the law regu- 
lating the reimbursement towns for transportation of high 
school pupils will be found in my report for the year 1914. 

SCHOOLS 

Our schools are taught by an efficient corps of teachers, 
who are interested in their pupils and enthusiastic in their work. 
The pupils have the right attitude toward the teachers and their 
school duties. When these relation- exist good work is always 
the result. Effort has been made to improve the reading and 
penmanship and much has been accomplished. A specimen of 
each pupil's penmanship is placed in the hands of the superin- 



57 

tendent once each month for examination. There is evident 
improvement but ample opportunity for greater effort. 

Our boys and girls have been doing their bit in the war by 
their. work in school garden and Home Club, in raising vege- 
tables and pigs, canning and sewing. They are learning to do 
these things by doing them. Two thousand eight hundred pigs 
were raised this year by the boys and girls in the state. Three 
were raised in Enfield. May more of the children join the Home 
Club this year. 

The following is from a letter sent to the school committees 
and superintendents in the state by the Commissioner of Educa- 
tion: 

"With the approach of the annual town meetings, when 
the question of appropriations is to be taken up, our people 
should give thoughtful attention to the unusual conditions con- 
fronting the schools. Increased cost in every direction brings 
the town and cities face to face with the necessity of increasing 
school appropriations for the coming year. The schools have 
never before required more thoughtful attention to their needs, 
and it will not be safe to handicap them with a policy of re- 
trenchment. It is worthy the attention of the American people 
that, in spite of enormous expenditures for war purposes, France 
is giving unprecedented attention to her public schools, and 
England, for the current year, increased her expenditures for 
public education 30 per cent over that for any preceeding year. 

Education is a long-time investment. Its purpose is to pro- 
tect democracy through the right training of the youth. Even 
temporary interference with this purpose, through inadequate 



58 

financial support, may seriously impair the quality of our 
future citizenship. In the present crisis, it is imperative that 
towns and cities give careful consideration to the needs of the 
schools." 

Respectfully submitted, 

ALVAN R. LEWIS.

Public Library Report 



TO THE CITIZENS OF ENFIELD: 

The peculiar conditions of the past year have perhaps 
prevented many from finding the time for study and reading 
which they otherwise would have done. Many of the young men 
have been away in the service of their country, the young women 
and girls have given much time and attention to Red Cross 
work, out door work, planting gardens and fields, gathering crops, 
conserving food or doing any necessary work. The desire for 
reading good books and periodicals has not diminished. Every 
year brings increasing appreciation of the value of the library, 
by the student, the lover of reading, and the many seeking 
information on varied subjects. The prevailing epidemic of 
influenza made necessary the closing of the library for three 
weeks yet nearly six thousand books were taken and the maga- 
zines were eagerly sought for and read in many homes. 

The association subscribes for the following magazines: 
Atlantic Monthly, Century, Harper's, Scribner's, Good House- 
keeping, Country Life in the War, Popular Mechanics, Scientific 
American, Illustrated World, American, Review of Reviews. 
Harper's Bazaar, Woman's Home Companion, Ladies' Home 
Journal, American Magazine, Cosmopolitan, Youth's Compan- 
ion, St. Nicholas. 



46 

The House Beautiful, Dumb Animals, Red Cross Magazine, 
and Ladies' Home Journal were contributed by thoughtful 
friends. 

Of course the absorbing interest of everyone has been in 
books relating to the war which has led the directors to pur- 
chase many which they regarded as the most instructive and 
interesting, besides the usual number of books of Fiction, 
Travel and general interest. 

The State Library Bureau presented the association with 
thirty-five of the best books for juvenile readers. 

Mrs. Susan J. Crane has given the association a deed dated 
May 16, 1815, bearing the plainly written and interesting sig- 
nature of Robert Field for whom this town is named. 

The Librarian, Mrs. C. Elmer Harwood, Asst. Librarian, 
Mrs. Charles N. Downing continue in office the coming year. 

We ask the town for a small increase in the appropriation 
for the support of the library in addition to the income from the 
dog fund as the latter was much less the last year than in any 
of the preceding ones. 

"Next to acquiring good friends, the best acquaintance is 
that of good books." — Colton. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MARION ANDREWS SMITH, 

President Enfield Library Association.

Tree Warden's Report Year 1918 



The trees along the main streets have been trimmed and 
trees that were dead or dangerous have been removed from near 
the following properties: John Foley. Harry Hess. Henry Hunt, 
Daniel Bolter. Walter Brown. Elmer Bowen. Helen Taylor, 
Frank Ingrabam. Henry Wells, Joshua Crowther, Church 
Cemetery, Congregational parsonage. F. E. Parsons, Amos 
Hough, D. O. Chickering. Benjamin Rohan. Walter Bliss. Eliza 
Gray. 

The trees removed from the Church Cemetery were re-

with the Selectmen. The tree removed from in front of the Con- 
gregational parsonage was removed after consultation with the 
selectmen. 

There are four trees in the Church Cemetery that are dan- 
gerous and should be removed before more stones, or a monu- 
ment, is broken by falling limbs. 

Permission has been granted to J. H. Webster, Henry Hunt, 
Steve Baraniuk. Samuel Hurwitz and Harry Webster to remove 
certain trees.

Report of School Committee 



The Department of Schools of Enfield the past year has 
progressed with satisfaction. We consider ourselves fortunate 
in being able to retain our corps of teachers without any change 
and believe that a teacher can do better work each year in the 
same place rather than to frequently change the teaching unit. 
In spite of the loss of time caused by the enforced suspension of 
schools during the influenza epidemic there has been no falling 
behind in the ground covered. The attendance, all things con- 
sidered, has been good and notwithstanding the large number of 
cases of influenza we have lost no pupil by death. 

We ask that parents co-operate with the Board and the 
teachers in influencing the children to take pride in their punc- 
tuality, their work and their school and help them realize that 
their work now is the foundation for successful years to come. 

On account of new methods adopted by the State Board of 
Education the amount of money available from them is consid- 
erably reduced and it becomes imperative for us to appropriate 
a larger amount than last year if we are to receive a substantial 
reimbursement from the State. We urge that this be done so 
we may avoid a large deficit in the items of transportation and 
tuition. 

W1LLARD B. SEGUR, Chairman.

Report of the Superintendent of 

Schools 



TO THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE OF ENFIELD: 

I herewith submit for your consideration my eleventh an- 
nual report which is the fifteenth in this series. 

ATTENDANCE 



The per cent, of attendance for the year ending June 30, 
1918, was 93 and there were 162 cases of tardiness. I find that 
the time as to clocks differ, not only in the families, but in the 
school rooms. If the teachers and parents would be more care- 
ful as to the correct time I believe that there would be fewer 



54 



* 



cases of tardiness. If there is an}' doubt regarding the correct 
time the pupil should be given the benefit of the doubt. 

SCHOOLS 

It is gratifying to be able to report for the first time during 
the hist ten years that there has been no change of teachers. 
This is probably owing to the increase of salaries. It is a great 
benefit to our schools to be able to retain th a same corps of 
teachers from year to year; much more and better work can be 
accomplished. The teachers and parents can become better 
acquainted and the teacher's influence for good in the commu- 
nity should be greater. 

At the opening of the school in September it was thought 
advisable, on account of the small number attending the Potter 
school, to close the school and transfer the pupils to the center 
schools. This saves the town the expense of ma in tan in g the 
school and causes the pupils very little inconvenience. 

There are twenty-four pupils attending high schools, twelve 
at At hoi, four at Springfield, four at New Salem and four at 
Belchertown. These pupils are doing satisfactory work. 

Notwithstanding the interruption because of sickness good 
progress has been made in school work. 

A special teacher of music and drawing and the additions 
of domestic science for the girls and manual training for the boys 
would be of great value Nearly all the cities and towns in the 
state are carrying on this work in the schools. 

I am arranging with the deputy commissioner of education 
to hold a joint meeting of the committees and teachers of Enfield 
and Belchertown at an early date. 

Your attention is called to an act relating to the reimburse- 
ment of tuition and transportation of pupils, but especially to 
sections four, five, six and nine. 



An Act Relative to High School Education in Towns of Less 
Than Five Hundred Families and to State Aid Therefor 

Be it enacted, etc., as follows: 

Section 1. For the purposes of this act a "high school" is 
defined as that part of the school system which furnishes instruc- 
tion in addition to that offered in the first eight grades and other 
than vocational instruction which is directly aided by the Com- 
monwealth. 

Section 2. If a town of less than five hundred families, 
according to the latest census, state or national, maintains a 
public high school, it shall, subject to the provisions of section 
six hereof, be reimbursed annually from the treasury of the com- 
monwealth, a sum not exceeding one thousand two hundred 
and fifty dollars, determined as follows: For a principal and 
for each teacher devoting full time to the high school, two hun- 
dred and fifty dollars; for a principal and for each teacher de- 
voting part time to the high school, a part of two hundred and 
fifty dollars proportional to the amount of time devoted to the 
high school. But no town shall receive money from the com- 
monwealth under the provisions of this section unless its high 
school is approved by the board of education. 

Section 3. If a town of less than five hundred families, 
according to the latest census, state or national, does not main- 
tain a public high school offering four years of instruction, it 
shall pay the tuition of any pupil who resides in that town and 
obtains from the school committee of the town a certificate to 
attend a high school of another city or town included in the 
list of high schools approved for this purpose by the board of ed- 
ucation. Such a town shall also, through its school committee, 
provide, when it is necessary, for the transportation of such 
a pupil, but the town is not hereby required to, but may, expend 



56 

more than one dollar and fifty cents per week for transportation 
during the time of actual attendance of the pupil. The board 
of education shall approve the high schools which may be attend- 
ed by such pupils, and it may for this purpose, approve a 
public high school in an adjoining state. Whenever, in the judg- 
ment of the board of education, it is expedient that such a pupil 
shall board in the town in which he attends high school, the 
town may, through the school committee, pay toward the board 
of that pupil, in lieu of transportation, such sum as the school 
committee may determine. 

If the school committee refuses to issue a certificate as 
aforesaid, application may be made to the board of education, 
which, if it finds that the educational needs of the pupil in ques- 
tion are not reasonably provided for, may issue a certificate 
having the same force and effect as though issued by the school 
committee. The application shall be filed with the superin- 
tendent of schools of the town, and by him transmitted forthwith 
to the board of education with a report of the facts relative 
thereto. 

Section 4. If the expenditure per thousand dollars valua- 
tion from the proceeds of local taxation for the support of public 
schools, made by any town of less than five hundred families, 
for the three town fiscal years preceding any school year, averag- 
ed more than four and not more than five dollars, the town 
shall be reimbursed from the treasury of the commonwealth 
one-half of the amount that it paid for that school year, in ac- 
cordance with section three for the transportation of pupils to 
high schools of ether cities or towns, or for board in lieu thereof; 
if said average was more than five and not more than six dollars 
the town shall be reimbursed three-fourths of the amount that 
it paid in accordance with section three for transportation, or 
for board in lieu thereof; and if said average was more than six 
dollars, the town shall be reimbursed the whole amount that it 



57 

paid in accordance with section three for transportation, or for 
board in lieu thereof; but reimbursement by the state for expen- 
ditures for transportation or for board in lieu thereof, shall not 
be based on any amounts in excess of one dollar and fifty cents 
per week of actual attendance of any pupil, and all expenditures 
for transportation upon which state reimbursement is to be 
based shall be subject to approval by the board of education. 

Section 5. If the valuation of a town of less than five 
hundred families for the town fiscal year preceding any school 
year does not exceed five hundred thousand dollars, the town 
shall be reimbursed from the treasury of the commonwealth, 
subject to the provisions of section six hereof, for the whole 
amount that it paid for that school year in accordance with 
section three thereof for the tuition of pupils attending high 
schools in other cities or towns; if said valuation exceeds five 
hundred thousand dollars but does not exceed one million dollars, 
the town shall be reimbursed three-fourths of the amount that 
it paid for such tuition; and if said valuation exceeds one million 
dollars, it shall be reimbursed one-half the amount that it paid 
for such tuition. 

Section 6. No town shall ' receive any reimbursement 
from the treasury of the commonwealth under the provision of 
sections two and five of this act if the valuation of the town for 
the town fiscal year preceding the school year for which such 
reimbursement is to be made, divided by the average member- 
ship of its public schools for the school year preceding the school 
year for which such reimbursement is to be made, exceeds the 
corresponding quotient for the commonwealth. 

Section 7. If the school committee of a town of less than 
five hundred families, not maintaining a public high school 
offering four years of instruction, provides for the instruction of 
a pupil who by reason of physical disability is unable to attend 
a high school in another city or town, and if the arrangement 



58 

is approved by the board of education, the town will be reimburs- 
ed from the treasury of the commonwealth for such expendi- 
ture under the same conditions and to the same amount that it 
would have received reimbursement for the tuition of such a 
pupil in the high school of another city or town, and for his 
transportation thereto. But such reimbursement shall not be 
based on any amounts in excess of one hundred dollars per year 
in lieu of tuition, and one dollar and fif t5 r cents per week of actual 
instruction in lieu of transportation. 

Section 8. Section three of chapter forty-two of the Re- 
vised Laws, as amended by chapter four hundred and thirty- 
three of the acts of nineteen hundred and two, by chapter five 
hundred and thirty-seven of the acts of nineteen hundred and 
eleven, and by chapter three hundred and ninety-six of the acts 
of nineteen hundred and thirteen, and chapters two hundred 
of the acts of nineteen hundred and six, and four hundred and 
twenty-seven of the acts of nineteen hundred and eight, are 
hereby repealed. 

Section 9. This act shall take effect on the first day of 
January, nineteen hundred and nineteen, and shall apply to 
expenses for high school education incurred on and after Septem- 
ber first, nineteen hundred and eighteen. Approved May 10, 1918. 

The schools have done their "bit" during the year. The 
Victory girls and boys have raised $80 and are paying for 94 
war saving stamps and 164 thrift stamps. Sixty-eight pupils 
have subscribed. 

In closing I thank you for your continued confidence and 
assistance. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ALVAN R. LEWIS. 
December 31, 1918.

Public Library Report 



TO THE CITIZENS OF ENFIELD: 

The patronage of the library during the past year tells of un- 
diminished interest in reading and study on the many subjects 
which it furnishes. The experience of our returned Soldiers 
has given them increaseed appreciation of the privilege of 
having access to books and magazines at anytime. Our teachers 
find much help from books in their school work as well as for 
personal improvement and recreation when they have a leisure 
hour. The magazines contain many interesting and instructive 
articles written by the b l 3st authorities on the subjects of which 
they treat. These find a wide reading as they may be taken to 
the homes after lying for one mo,nth on the library table. The 
magazines found here are Atlantic Monthly, Century, Harper's 
Magazine, Country Life, American Magazine, Good House- 
keeping, Woman's Home Companion, Harper's Bazaar, Pop- 
ular Mechanics, Illustrated World, Scientific American, Cos- 
mopolitan, Scribner's, Review of Reviews, St. Nicholas, 
Youth's Companion, Ladies' Home Journal, Saturday Evening 
Post, Outlook, Boy's Life. 

We wonder if the older residents of the town realize the value 
of the library to the younger generation, their children and grand 
children, tvoth as a means of education and a help in forming 



51 

a taste for reading good books. We often hear those of middle 
age say, "If we had had the library when I was a child how 
much pleasure and information I should have found in it." 

The Association is grateful to the State Library Commission 
for its gift of seventy-five books, mainly Juvenile, but including 
a few others one being "Have Faith in Massachusetts/' a 
collection of the able speeches of Governor Calvin Coolidge, 
also a year's subscription to the Saturday Evening Post, The 
Outlook and Boy Life. 

Mr. John E. Hess, the efficient secretary and treasurer of the 
Association for six years declined re-election and Miss Harriet 
L. Lacey was chosen to succeed him, her trained mind and 
knowledge of books and affairs make her well fitted to fill the 
place. Mrs. C. Elmer Harwood and Mrs. Charles N. Downing 
continue in office as librarian and assistant librarian. 

The high cost of paper and the making of books has made it 
impossible for the Directors to purchase some needed standard 
works, as well as lighter reading and the better class of novels 
dealing with the questions of the present day. An increase in 
the appropriation made by the town would be of lasting 
benefit to every individual. The amount of the dog fund has 
been much reduced the last few years. 

The great need is for a building which would furnish more 
room for books and a pleasant reading room. 

"Books like friendships, grow into our lives, modify and 
stimulate them, and are sometimes their brightest sunshine." 
Lady Milnes Haskell. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MARION ANDREWS SMITH, 

President Enfield Library Association.

Report of School Committee 



In addition to the report of the Superintendent of Schools 
the School committee submits the following: 

The present school year finds us with the same staff of teachers 
as in the previous year except that in place of Miss Thayer, re- 
signed, Miss Barttro has charge of the fourth and fiftft 
grades and is giving complete satisfaction. It is a matter of 
gratification that so many of our grammar school graduates 
are continuing their studies in the higher schools of learning. 
The thoroughness of their earlier training is shown in the high 
standing of nearly all of high school pupils, which is sufficient 
proof of the efficiency of our teachers as well as of the strong 
desire of the young ladies and gentlemen to secure a broad and 
full education. Knowing that a trained mind is superior to 
brute force we believe that our young people will become fit to 
assume the higher duties of life in the years to come. The 
question of transportation is one of our greatest expenses and 
the cause of frequent misunderstanding. 

It is the aim of the Committee to aid the children living at a 
distance from the center in carrying on their school work and so 
assist the parents in giving their children the necessary education. 



56 

Our assistance in this matter is intended to be impartial but it 
does not relieve the parents of the duty of doing their best in 
giving school advantages to their children. 

The present year promises to be successful and equal or 
surpass the high standard of past years. 

WILLARD B. SEGUR, Chairman.

Report of the Superintendent 

of Schools 



TO THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE OF ENFIELD: 

I have the honor of submitting for your consideration my 
twelfth annual report which is the sixteenth in this series. 

Probably the school work in the state has never been so 
seriously interrupted as it has been for the past few years be- 
cause of infantile paralysis, shortage of fuel, and influenza. 
The schools of Enfield fortunately, were little affected. The 
school statistics found in this report are for the year ending 
June 30, 1919. The per cent, of attendance was 92, a little 
lower than usual. T'h e number of cases of tardiness was one 
hundred fifteen. There has been a great improvement during 
the past few years. The number is still too large. Absence or 
tardiness on account of sickness is excusable, but to be tardy 
because of late rising, going on errands or loitering is inexcusable. 
I trust the parents will make an effort to break up this habit on 
the part of the children. I believe that, in a great many cases, 
it is the parents' fault. 

There has been only one change in our corps of teachers 
during the year. Miss Fannie Thayer, teacher of the fourth and 



58 

fifth grades in the center, resigned at the close of the year to 
accept a position in the schools of Longmeadow. Miss Damaris 
Barttro, a graduate of a normal school and a teacher of long 
experience was elected to fill the vacancy. Her work as a dis- 
ciplinarian and instructor proves that a wise choice was made. 

Our schools are taught by a corps of good teachers and good 
progress is made. Although the membership is steadily de- 
creasing the number attending high schools is increasing. 
There are thirty-two, twenty in Athol, five in Springfield, four 
in New Salem, two in Belchertown and one in Boston. 

The school year has been increased from thirty-six to forty 
weeks. This makes it possible to eventually decrease the 
number of grades to eight without lowering the present standard 
and would give the primary teacher only two grades. 

The law relating to the employment of minors between 
the ages of fourteen and sixteen years has been revised so that 
pupils before receiving employment certificates must have 
completed the work of the sixth grade. A duplicate of the 
certificate, in case the pupil is employed out of town, must be 
sent to the superintendent of schools of the town in which the 
pupil is employed. All children between fourteen and sixteen 
years of age must regularly attend school unless they have been 
furnished a certificate and are regularly employed. 

The object of our public schools is to train the children 
for right living. It is the duty of the teacher to train the child 
as far as possible, mentally, physically and morally. Less stress 
should not be laid on the mental and physical but greater 
effort should be given toward the moral development. Rouseau 
in writing on the education of the child says, "Let him first be 
a man." We read in the Constitution of Massachusetts, "It 
shall be the duty of legislators and magistrates, in all future 
periods of the Commonwealth, to countenance and inculcate 
the principles of humanity and general benevolence, public 



59 

and private charity, industry and frugality, honesty and punc- 
tuality in their dealings; sincerity, good humor and all social 
affections and generous sentiments among the people." 

During the year 1920, the Tercentenary celebration of the 
founding of Massachusetts will be observed. The teachers of 
the public schools should keep in mind the ideals we have 
inherited from the founders of our Commonwealth. 

For recommendations I will refer you to the report of last 
year. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ALVAN R. LEWIS,

Public Library Report 



To the Citizens of Enfield: 

How quickly the years pass and it is time for the 
Annual Report of the Enfield Library Association. We 
are glad to report increasing patronage and a greater de- 
sire for reading books which are "worth while." The read- 
ing of good books fills an important place in our educa- 
tional system. One may cultivate a taste for reading as 
for many other desirable things and it soon becomes not 
only profitable but enjoyable. A well read person is an 
educated person. I have been told that our soldiers in 
the late war in their leisure hours eagerly sought for books 
on special subjects which interested them, and in this way 
acquired much information which would prove useful to 
them in later years. In both my visits to Europe I 
had the pleasure of spending a few hours in the library of 
Sir Walter Scott, which is just as he left it at Abbotsford 
his beautiful home on the Tweed. As I looked at the long 
shelves filled with rows of books, in imagination I saw the 
delicate, lame boy, who was laid out on the sunny hillside 
to recuperate health and strength, and then the writer of 
mature years, who furnished so much valuable information 
and delightful reading to generations of students and read- 
ers in man)' countries. 

The increased appropriation from the town made it 
possible for us to buy some much needed books on dif- 
ferent subjects, which have been appreciated and enjoyed 
by many readers. Much care and thought is given to the 
selection of books, particularly fiction, which we design 
shall be written by standard authors, not only interesting, 
but instructive, and often teaching some useful lesson. 
Thanks are due the State Library Commission for many 
books adapted to young people, which make a pleasant 
addition to our library. 

The magazines furnish valuable reading on a variety 
of subjects, by able writers, and help to pass many pleas- 
ant hours, as they may be taken to the homes after lying 



43 

on the reading table one month. The same publications 
as last year will be found on the tables. 

One hundred valuable volumes belonging to the li- 
brary of the late Dr. Francis H. Underwood, some of them 
rare editions by noted authors, have been presented to the 
Library Association by his sister, Mrs. Susan J. Crane. We 
appreciate the gift and thank her most sincerely. 

The sudden death of Miss Harriet L. Lacey, our ef- 
ficient Secretary and Treasurer, is felt as a distinct loss 
to the Association she served. 

Miss Marian L. Thayer has been elected Secretary and 
Treasurer of the Library Association, and is ably filling the 
place. Mrs. C. Elmer Harwood and Mrs. Charles N. Down- 
ing continue in office as librarian and assistant librarian. 

A library of good books is a valuable asset to any town 
and should be appreciated by every resident. Our library 
ranks as one of the best country libraries in the state. 

In addition to the dog tax we ask that a liberal appro- 
priation be made for the coming year, that the library may 
be kept at its present high standard. 

"To be aristocratic in taste and democratic in service 
is the privilege and glory of a public library." 

BLISS PERRY. 
Respectfully submitted, 

MARION ANDREWS SMITH, 
President Enfield Library Association.

Report of School Committee 



To the Inhabitants of Enfield : 

Your School Committee desires to express its satis- 
faction in regard to the schools of Enfield, its efficient 
force of teachers, the high average of scholarship attained 
by the pupils and the honors attained by its former pupils 
now attending schools of higher learning elsewhere. 

We are confident that nothing adds more to the pres- 
tige of a town than the opportunity for a well laid educa- 
tional foundation npou which our boys and girls may build 
their future success. We were fortunate in securing Mrs. 
Prentiss, a teacher of experience, to succeed Miss John- 
son in the Kimball district and her work is proving grat- 
ifying to all. By means of a State provision we have been 
able to advance the salary paid to the teachers of the Cen- 
ter school and thus retain the same efficient teachers as 
last year. 

The citizens of Enfield, we believe, have reason to 
congratulate themselves on the quality of our schools and 
the success attained by its pupils and also that we lose 
nothing by comparison with any other town. 

We earnestly ask the parents and guardians for in- 
creased co-operation with your Committee in promoting 
general harmony in the school administration and to be 
assured that it is our aim to give to each fair and equal 
rights and the opportunity for their children's success in 
this most important factor of town affairs. 

WILLARD B. SEGUR, Chairman. 
M. ROZILLA BARLOW, 
ELIZABETH K. RITCHIE, 

School Committee. 



Report of the Superintendent 

of Schools 



To the School Committee, Enfield : 

It is my privilege to submit for your consideration my 
thirteenth annual report, which is the seventeenth in this 
series. 

The per cent of attendance for the year ending* June 
30, 1920 was 93.5, a gain of one and one-half per cent. The 
number of cases of tardiness remains about the same, one 
hundred nineteen. I will again urge the .ts to in- 

sist upon their children being in school on time. All chil- 
dren 1 etween seven and sixteen years of age, must reg- 
ular!}' attend school. The only exceptions to this law are 
those between fourteen and sixteen years of age, who have 
obtained an employment certificate and are regularly em- 
ployed, and those who furnish a physician's certificate 
stating that they are not physically or mentally able to 
attend school. 

There lias been only one change in our corps of teachers. 
Miss Florence Johnson, teacher in the Kimball school re- 
signed ac the close of the Spring term to accept a position 
in the State of Connecticut at a larger salary than we were 
able to pay. To secure a teacher for this position Was 
difficult, owing to the shortages of teachers and the higher 
salaries offered in larger towns, and cities. Just before 
the schools opened in September, we were fortunate in 
securing the services of Mrs. Elizabeth Prentiss, a success- 
ful teacher of many years' experience. The work in this 
school is constantly improving. 

Securing teachers, especially in the fural towns, is a 
difficult problem. Because of this serious condition Gov. 
Coolidge appointed a commission on teachers' salaries 
with Dr. Payson Smith, Commissioner of Education, as the 
chairman. It found that a few schools had been closed be- 
cause of lack of teachers ; 634 teachers went from this State 
to teach in other States or to engage in more profitable em- 
ployment ; that between 1910 and 19*20 the cost of living- 
had increased 100 per cent while the average salaries of the 
elementary teachers was increased 85 per cent ; that in the 



normal schools the enrollment of men had decreased 37 per 
cent and that of women 27 per cent. 

The Commission recommended that legal salary be 
increased from $550 to $800, not exempting towns of less 
than $1,000,000 valuation; that the salaries used as a basis 
for reimbursement under the General School fund act 
be raised to $800, $900, $1000, that the reimbursements be 
increased from $100, $150, $200 to $250, $300, $350 a teacher. 

As the reimbursements increase professional training 
or a longer term of service will, undoubtedly, be required. 
Teachers who expect an increase in salary should prepare 
for it. It has been made possible for teachers to take a nor- 
mal course without loss of time and with, practically, no ex- 
pense. North Adams Normal School offers such a course. 

The work done in our schools is of a high grade as is 
evidenced by the good work of the pupils who enter high 
schools. That so many of our graduates continue their 
work in high schools is gratifying. There are fifteen in the 
Athol High school and five in the Springfield high school. 

At the opening of the schools in September there were 
only five pupils in the eighth grade in the Center and the 
primary room was crowded. It was thought' advisable to 
unite the eighth and ninth grades and place two grades 
in one room ; this relieved the congested condition of the 
primary room. With a school year of forty weeks our 
course of study ought to be covered in eight years. 

. Many days during the year it becomes so dark in the 
school rooms that it is difficult for the pupils to study prop- 
erly ; in fact they should not be allowed to strain their eyes 
during these periods. 

I recommend that electric lights be installed in the 
Center school rooms ; that our course of study be changed 
from a nine-year course to an eight-year course; and that a 
teacher of music be employed. 

I thank the committee, teachers, and the citizens for 
their hearty co-operation and support. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ALVAN R. LEWIS. 
December 31. 1920.

Public Library Report 

To the Citizens of Enfield: 

The Directors of the Enfield Library Association are 
glad to report increased patronage of the library and an 
increasing desire for good and profitable reading. Seven 
thousand, one hundred and sixty-five books have been ta- 
ken from the library the past year. 

The magazines find their way into many homes and 
help to pass the leisure hours pleasantly and profitably. 
The Association subscribes for Harper's Magazine, At- 
lantic Monthly, Century, Country Life, American Maga- 
zine, Good Housekeeping, Woman's Home Companion, 
Popular Mechanics, Illustrated World, Scientific Ameri- 
can, Cosmopolitan, Scribner's Review of Reviews, St. 
Nicholas, Youth's Companion, Ladies' Home Journal,Sat- 
urday Evening Post, Outlook, Boys' Life, and friends 
kindly bring in the National Geographic Magazine and 
Literary Digest. 

From the multitude of books of the present day, care- 
ful selection has been made of those pertinent to the times 
and which would prove of permanent value. 

We appreciate the gift from the State Library Com- 
mission of thirty-two books of special interest to young 
people. 

The value of free access to a library of good books 
cannot be overestimated. 

"Of making many books, there is no end", but the 
limit is soon reached of the small fund we have with 
which to purchase books and maintain the library. The 
great need is for a building. The overcrowded condition 
making it almost impossible to place another book. We 
wish some former or present resident would be inclined 
to give to the Associatoin and town a convenient and suit- 
able building which would immortalize the name of the 
donor and prove a blessing to the present and future gen- 



28 

erations. 

Mrs. C. Elmer Harwood and Mrs Charles N. Down- 
ing continue in office as librarian and assistant librarian. 
We ask that the town continue to show its interest 
in the library by making the usual annual appropriation 
for its support and granting the income of the dog fund. 

"No one can read a good and interesting book for an 
hour without being the better and the happier for it" 

Sir John Lubbock 
Respectfully submitted, ' 

Marion Andrews Smith 
President Enfield Library Association.

Report of School Committee 

The School Committee would respectfully submit 
the following report: 

At the annual town meeting held Feb. 7, 1921 r 
Willard B. Segur M. D. was re-elected a member of the 
school committee for three years. The committee met 
at the home of Mrs. Barlow Feb. 8, and organized, elect- 
ing W. B. Segur chairman and M. Rozilla Barlow secre- 
tary and treasurer. 

Your committee report a very satisfactory condition 
of the schools the past year,. We have had experienced 
teachers and they have done faithful work. 

There has been but one change in the teaching force 
during the year. Miss Alma A. Sternberg has succeeded 
Mrs. Bertha Prentiss, who resigned as teacher of the 
Kimball school, and her work has been highly efficient 
and satisfactory. 

We are pleased to have so many of our Grammar 
school graduates continue their studies in higher schools 
of learning and with the rank that some have obtained. 

Your committee appreciate the support given them 
and trust that you will become better acquainted with 
the work .done by frequent visits to the schools. 

Willard B. Segur, Chairman 
M. Rozilla Barlow 
Elizabeth K. Ritchie 

School Committee 



Report of the Superintendent of Schools 

To the School Committee. Enfield: 

It is my privilege to submit for your consideration 
my fourteenth annual report, which is the eighteenth in 
this series. 

The per cent of attendance for the year ending June 
30, 1921 was 95.7. a gain of two and two tenths per cent. 
The number of cases of tardiness was ninety-four, which 
shows considerable improvement. 

The law relating to the grade a child between four- 
teen and sixteen must have completed before he can re- 
ceive an employment certificate has been revised. A child 
now must have completed the work of the sixth grade. 

There has Veen only one change in our teaching 
force. Mrs. BerthaPrentiss, teacher in the Kimball 
school, resigned at the close of the school year to accept 
a position in the schools of Pelham at an increase in 
salary. Miss Alma Sternberg of Springfield, a teacher of 
training and experience, was elected to fill the vacancy 
and is doing excellent work. 

There have been thirty-six pupils from Enfield at- 
tending high schools, twenty-seven at Athol, six at 
Springfield, and three at Ware. It has again been brought 
to my attention that the pupils from Enfield lose much 
time net being able to reach the school in Athol before 
ten o'clock. With the new state road to Ware, and with 
the new high school building and a good road to Belcher- 
town it seems that arrangements could be made so that 
our pupils need not lose so much. 

The change from a nine year to an eight year 
course is working out satisfactorily. In fact with our 
forty weeks school year the pupils gain one year in their 
course without materially lowering the high standard 
our schools have maintained. 

Without neglecting any line of work, special empha- 
sis has been given to language and reading in the lower 
grades. Very little technical grammar should be taught 
below the seventh grade, but the pupils should be trained 
to express their thoughts in good oral and written 
English. Frequent exercises should be given in writing 
and telling stories, relating events, describing scenes, 
and stories suggested by pictures. They should be taught 
the use of capitals, to punctuate correctly, and to write 
social and business letters. In all their school work they 
should be trained to express in correct English 



35 

We do not forget that the moral training of the 
pupils is of the greatest importance. We are endeavoring 
to train the boys and girls to be honest, kind, respectful, 
pure in thought and word, and to reverence all that is 
sacred. 

Some repairs and improvements should be made as 
soon as the water question is settled. 

Respectfully submitted, 
Alvan R. Lewis 
Dec. 31, 1921. 



School Calendar 

Schools will reopen Sept. 5, 1922, and will close Dec. 
22, 1922. They will re-open Jan. 2, 1923, and will con-

Local Agent 



Superintendent of Schools 

To the School Committee, Enfield : 

It is my privilege to submit for your consideration 
my fifteenth annual report, which is the nineteenth in 
this series. 

The per cent, of attendance for the year ending June 
30, 1922, was ninety-three per cent, nearly three per cent, 
less than the year before. This was caused by stormy 
weather and sickness. The number of cases of tardiness 
for the same period was one hundred twenty-five. The 
number for the year before was ninety-four, a gain of 
thirty-one. I again call the attention of the parents to the 
importance of children being in school on time. Tardiness 
interrupts the work of the school and the children are 
forming habits that will greatly interfere with their suc- 
cess in their life work. I have investigated many of these 
cases and find that nearly all are without any good rea- 
son. Many of these pupils admit that it is possible for 
them to avoid being late. If the parents realized how im- 
portant it is for children to form the habit of being r 
prompt, I feel that they would be more careful in having 
their children in school on time. 

There has been only one change in our corps of teach- 
ers. Miss Alma Sternberg resigned at the close of the 
school year to accept a position in the schools of Connect- 
icut and Mr. Harold Poppie was elected to fill the position 
in the Kimball school. Enfield is fortunate in being able 
to retain her teachers. A good teacher should be retained 



27 



as long as possible, ?nd she is worth as much to Enfield 
as to any other town or city. I trust the time has arrived 
When the small towns in the state will no longer be train- 
ing schools for the larger towns and cities. Altho the law 
requires the smaller towns to pay larger salaries than 
formerly they receive some aid from the state, so that 
considering the high cost of living, the amount raised by 
taxation for teachers' salaries is not large. 

There have been twenty-four pupils from Enfield at- 
tending high school, since September, sixteen in Athol, 
three in Ware, one in Springfield, two in Belchertown, 
one in Agawam, and one in Chicopee. It is recommended 
and strongly urged by the State Board of Education that 
when the new high school building in Belchertown has 
been opened the Enfield pupils attend the hierh school 
there, providing that two more courses, Domestic Science 
and a Commercial course be added. The Belchertown high 
school is approved by the State Board of Education and 
is on the college certificate list. The puoils from Enfield 
could be easily transported and would be able to attend 
during the entire sessions. They now lose much time and 
remain a long time in Athol after the close of school, ap- 
parently under very little, if any, restriction. The present 
arrangement is unsatisfactory. 

Physical Education has been added to the required 
subjects to be taught in the public schools. A manual by 
Carl L. Schrader, state supervisor of physical education, 
outlining the work for each grade, has been placed in the 
hands of the teachers. 

Our schools are taught by able teachers who are 
faithful in their work. The school buildings are in good 
repair, excepting one room in the town hall building. The 
black boards in this room are in poor condition. 

In closing I take the opportunity to express my ap- 
preciation for your confidence, the loyalty of the teachers, 
and the courtesy of the pupils and their parents. 

Respectfully submitted, 
December 31, 1922 ALVAN R. LEWIS

Report of School Committee 

To the Citizens of Enfield :- 

The Department of Schools began the year with 
funds over one thousand dollars less than in previous 
years owing to the reduction in reimbursement derived 
from the State. This has restricted our efforts in many 
ways and limited any attempt to enlarge our educational 
field. Nevertheless we feel the year has been satisfactory 
and that we are providing schools for the children of En- 
field of a higher degree of efficiency than most towns are 
able to do and that this, in a large measure, is due to the 
excellence and devotion of our teachers. The thorough 
foundation our children receive here is proven by the sat- 
isfactory standing of those who carry on their studies in 
higher schools at various places. Mr. Harold Poppie was 
selected to teach in the Kimball district and we are grat- 
ified at the success he has achieved. While we have been 
obliged to defer for the present some improvements such 
as the installation of electric lights for use on dark days, 
better accommodation and care for those who remain dur- 
ing the noon hour for lunch and certain changes in the 
playground, we trust the near future will see these ac- 
complished. 

Respectfully, 
WILLARD B. SEGUR, Chairman.

Public Library Report 

To the Citizens of Enfield :- 

The Directors are pleased again to report a success- 
ful year of the Enfield Library Association. An increasing* 
number of readers of good books has marked the past 
year, while in many homes the "library book" has helped 
to pass pleasant and profitable hours. Gathered around 
the evening reading table may be found those interested' 
in questions pertaining to the present day which are 
treated by able writers in standard magazines and other 
periodicals. 

The Association subscribes for Harper's Magazine^ 
Atlantic Monthly, Century, Country Life, American Mag- 
azine, Good Housekeeping, Woman's Home Companion^ 
Popular Mechanics, Illustrated World, Scientific Ameri- 
can, Cosmopolitan. Scribner's, National Geographic Re- 
view of Reviews, St. Nicholas, Youth's Companion, Boys* 
Life, Ladies' Home Journal, Outlook, Saturday Evening 
Post. 

From the latest publications the Directors selected 
the best books of fiction, and others, on a variety of sub- 
jects most interesting to the general reader. 

We appreciate the gift from Mrs. William Harring- 
ton of nine interesting volumes and thirty books from the 
State Library Commission for our Juvenile department. 

In connection with the fourth annual Children's Book 
Week Nov. 12th to 18th in the reading contest arranged 
by the State Library Commission we are pleased to re- 
cord that thirty-four enjoyed to reading the five bookn 
required and received certificates from the State. 

The Librarian, Mrs. C. Elmer Harwood, Assistant. 
Librarian Mrs. Charles N. Downing, continue in office the: 
coming year. 

The Directors feel sure that the citizens of the town 
will be pleased to grant the usual appropriation and the 
income from the dog fund for the support of the library. 

"Many times the reading of a book has made the fu- 
ture of a man." — Emerson. 

Respectfully submitted, 
MARION ANDREWS SMITH, 
President Enfield Library Association*.

Public Library Report 

To the Citizens of Enfield :- 

The Directors of the Enfield Library Association are 
pleased to report increased use of the library and appre- 
ciation of its value to the community. 

The standard magazines find their way into many 
homes where they furnish interesting and instructive 
reading and a broader outlook on the leading questions 
of the day. 

The Association subscribes for Harper's magazine, 
Atlantic monthly, Century, Country Life, American 
magazine, Good Housekeeping, Woman's Home Com- 
panion, Popular Mechanics, Illustrated World, Scientific 
American, Cosmopolitan, Scribner's, National Geogra- 
phic, Review of Reviews, St. Nicholas, Youth's Compan- 
ion, Boy's Life, Ladies Home Journal, Outlook, Saturday 
Evening Post. 

We have placed on our shelves the past year delightful 
books of travel in many lands, a choice selection of the 
latest fiction, and books interesting to young people, also 
on general topics. 

We have received from Mrs. William Harrington thirty 
books selected from the best of the recent fiction and 
from the State Library Commision thirty-four books for 
our Juvenile Department. The interest in the library 
as manifested by these gifts is much appreciated. We 
regret the removal from town of our efficient secretary 
and treasurer of the last few years, Miss Marion L. Thay- 
er. Her place has been filled by the election of Mrs. 
Edith Hunt Downing, who has had experience in library 
work. 

The librarian, Mrs. C. Elmer Harwood and assistant 
librarian Mrs. Charles N. Downing continue in office the 
coming year. 

The directors feel sure that the citizens of the town 
will be pleased to grant the usual appropriation and the 
income from the dog fund for the support of the library. 
"Cultivate above all things a taste for reading. There 
is no pleasure so cheap, so innocent, and so remunerative 
as the real hearty pleasure and taste for reading" Lord 
Sherbrooke.

President, Enfield Library Association 



Report of School Committee 

The School Committee submits the following report: 

On account of the resignation of Mr. Poppie of the 
Kimball School, Mr. Randolph was elected and his work 
in our only district school is proving very satisfactory 
otherwise our teachers are the same as for the past few 
years. The number of pupils enrolled last year were 
158 and the average daily attendance was 141. There 
was expended $5.40 per pupil from local taxation for 
each $1000 of valuation for school support. Nineteen 
of our children attended High School at a nel cost to the 
town of $25.71 per pupil. With the completion of the 
new and up-to-date High School building in Belchertown 
an opportunity has been given for a more complete and 
satisfactory High School course than in the past and we 
are gratified to know that the pupils from Enfield are 
maintaining good standing in their work, some being 
prize and honor winners. 

The work in the schools of Enfield has been highly sat- 
isfactory and the general healthy condition of the 
children proven by the excellent daily average of atten- 
dance. 

An opportunity was provided by the District Health 
Officer, Dr. Harold E. Miner, to test the children as to 
their susceptability to diphtheria by the Schick test which 
was given to 111 with the result that 79 were found to be 
positive — that is, likely to contract the disease on ex 
posure. Some have already taken the treatment which 
will render them immune and others are to have it soon. 
The prevention of a disease is far better than the uncer- 
tainty of a possible cure. There are some repairs on the 
school buildings which should be made at once, the most 
imperative being the painting of the Grammar School 
and repair of the porch. Electric lights and improve- 
ments in the playground, including some of the athletic 
appliances for out door use are advised. 

We are receiving from the State a much smaller a- 
mount of reimbursement than formerly, consequently it 
is necessary that a larger appropriation be made by the 
town and to meet our actual needs we recommend that 
the sum of $5500 be made this year for the support of the 
schools which amount is less than % of 1 % of our valua- 
tion. The children of Enfield are able to receive an edu- 
cation equal to that provided by larger towns and we 
cannot afford to lower our standard or efficiency. 

WILLARD B. SEGUR, Chairman 



Superintendent of Schools 

To the School Committee, Enfield :- 

It is my privilege to submit for your consideration my 
sixteenth annual report which is the twentieth in this 
series. 

The per cent of attendance during the year ending 
June 30, 1923 was 93. The number of cases of tardiness 
is much larger than usual caused by the large number 
in the Kimball school. Two hundred ninty-seven tardy 
marks in a school whose average attendance is twenty 
is deplorable and cannot be given a reasonable explana- 
tion. It shows a total desregard, on the part of many 
parents and pupils, of the time when school begins. When 
a pupil does not care whether he is in school on time or 
not he is sure to be careless about his work. Almost in- 
variably a boy or girl who is often late to school is low 
in scholarship ; and a parent who permits a child in his 
care to acquire the habit of being late is greatly injur- 
ing the child's chance of success in school and of succeed- 
ing when he leaves school for his life work. The attend- 
ance in this school has improved during the first four 
months of this year. 

There has been only one change in teachers. Mr. Har- 
old Poppie resigned as teacner of the Kimball school at 
the close of the schools in June to enter college, and Mr. 
Herbert Randolph was elected to fill the vacancy. 

It is the business of the schools to prepare our boys 
and girls, so far as is possible, morally, mentally and 
physically, for citizenship. Our schools are taught by 
teachers who are faithful and conscientious in their work 
The work done is of a high order. Our pupils are well 
prepared for the higher schools, which many attend. 
Each child is given an eye and ear test once a year, and 
the parents are notified of any defects found and advised 
to consult a specialist. Some of the parents act upon 
the advice given, but some ignore it and the child suffers 
and fails to do his work properly. 

Nearly every child in the schools of the state is in the 
care of a school nurse who looks after his health. 

Although much can be done in our schools by precept 
in training the children for right living, yet the greatest 
factor in moral training is the home. If a child is trained 
in his home to obey and to have respect for authority 
he will very seldom have any trouble in school or else- 
where.' 



32 

Comparatively few parents visit the schools when the 
regular work is being done. If a visit was made occas- 
ionally by the fathers and mothers it would be an incen- 
tive to the teachers and children. 

It is well for children to know, before entering the high 
school, what courses are offered and what studies are 
required in each course. The following are the courses 
offered in the Belchertown high school ; Certificate privi- 
lege is based on a rank of 80 in all subjects offered; 15 
points are required for graduation ; a point is the work 
of one period a week per year.

Dec. 31, 1923. Alvan R. Lewis.

Public Library Report 



To the Citizens of Enfield: — 

The call for the annual town meeting reminds the Directors 
of the Enfield Library Association a report is due from them. 
Six thousand, eight hundred and twelve books have been taken 
from the library the past year, an average of 131 per week. 

The well-lighted reading table is appreciated by interested 
readers of the following standard magazines: Atlantic [Monthly, 
Century Country Life, Harper's Magazine, Good Housekeeping, 
Woman's Home Companion, Popular Mechanics, Scientific 
American, Scribner's, American Magazine, Cosmopolitan, 
National Geographic, Review of Reviews, St. Nicholas, Youth's 
Companion, Boys' Life, Ladies' Home Journal, Outlook, Sat- 
urday Evening Post. 

The sudden death of Mrs. Harwood, our faithful librarian 
for many years, came as a shock to her friends. We shall miss 
her cheerful presence, willing hand, and kind interest in every- 
thing pertaining to the library. [Mrs. Charles N. Downing, 
assistant librarian for several years, has been chosen librarian. 

Many interesting and carefully chosen books adapted to 
varying ages have been purchased. Where are new books to 
be placed? Who will give us the much needed library building? 

We are grateful to [Mrs. William Harrington for her interest 
in the library expressed by the gift of twenty-two volumes 
selected from the best of the recent fiction. 

The directors feel sure the citizens of the town will be pleased 
to grant the usual appropriation and the income from the dog 
fund for the use of the library. 

"The ability to read attentively and intelligently is by far 
the most widely useful and important of all the instruments 
put into the hands of the child" — Landon. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MARION ANDREWS SMITH, 

President Enfield Library Association.

Report of School Committee 



The School Committee of Enfield considers themselves for- 
tunate in being able to retain the same teachers in the Center 
School who have served us so well and faithfully for a number of 
years past. 

For the Kimball School Miss Edith Schwartzman was secur- 
ed and her work as teacher is proving very satisfactory. 

It is with a modest feeling of pride we note that Enfield has 
30 children attending High School and that of the graduating 
class of '24 the entire class, 100%, are in High School. 

In accordance with an order from the State Board of 
Education a school nurse had to be employed and Miss Cora 
Jackson of Enfield was chosen. Her work has been consistent 
and faithful. During the past seven school months she has 
attended to all the children, examining and following up, 21 
times and given first aid for minor injuries six times. Assisting 
the School Physician in a complete examination of the children 
there were found and notices sent to parents defects of eyes in 
ten cases, teeth 40, nose and throat 28. An epidemic of "pink 
eye" called for special attention in 11 cases. Five children 
were considerably underweight but all have shown gain and no 
child is considered at present as tubercular. Anti diphtheritic 
toxin-antitoxin was given by the School Physician to all the 
State wards who showed a positive reaction to the Schick test 
to the number of 84. Twelve other children have taken this 
valuable treatment. The health in the schools has been excel- 
lent since an epidemic of measles last winter. 

A cordial spirit of co-operation on the part of parents and 
teachers has existed and should be still further developed. 

WILLARD B. SEGUR, Chairman.

Report of the Superintendent of 

Schools 



To the School Committee, Enfield: — 

It is my privilege to submit for your consideration my 
seventeenth annual report which is the twenty-first in this series. 

The per cent, of attendance for the year ending June 30, 
1924 was 92, one per cent, less than the year before, which was 
caused by an epidemic of measles, when the attendance in the 
primary schools was very small. 

It is worthy of note that the number of cases of tardiness 
for the year was only eighty-nine. Last year it was two hun- 
dred and ninety-seven. We appreciate the efforts made by the 
parents and pupils to correct the habit of being late. 

Because of sickness of the teacher in the Kimball school, 
Mrs. Nina Palmer of Springfield was employed as a substitute 
for the spring term. The work continued with little interrup- 
tion. At the close of the year, Mr. Randolph secured a position 
elsewhere and Miss Edith Schwarzman, a normal graduate, was 
elected teacher of the Kimball school. There has been no other 
change in the teaching force. Miss Cora Jackson was appointed 
school nurse and is doing efficient work. Miss Genevieve Gale 
has been employed as music teacher. As her work began only 
a few weeks ago, it is not possible to speak of it intelligently at 
this time. The employment of a school nurse and a teacher 
of music has added greatly to the efficiency of our schools. 

There are thirty pupils in Enfield attending high schools, 
twenty-seven in Belchertown, one in Springfield, one in Agawam, 
and one in Ware. These pupils are doing satisfactory work as 
is evidenced by the large per cent, of Enfield pupils in the list 
of honor pupils. The work pupils are able to accomplish in the 
high school is a fair test of the efficiency of the graded schools. 

The condition of the buildings has been improved and the 
rooms made more attractive. Environment is an important factor 
in educ.'H ion. 



37 

The work of the schools is being made as practical as pos- 
sible. The boys and girls of today will soon take an active 
part in public affairs, and it is the business of our public schools 
to train them to become good citizens; but it should not be 
forgotten that the most important period in the life of a child 
in training for right living, is spent in the home before he is old 
enough to enter school * 

I take this opportunity to invite the parents to often visit 
the schools while they are occupied with their daily work that 
they may see for themselves the work accomplished. 

I heartily appreciate the continued confidence and co- 
operation of the committee. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Dec. 31, 1924 ALVAN R. LEWIS.

Public Library Report 



To the Citizens of Enfield: — 

The Directors of the Enfield Library Association submit 
the following report: The library contains 8199 volumes, non- 
fiction 4114, fiction 2648, juvenile 1437. The circulation for the 
year was 1546, a gratifying increase over the previous year. 

On the reading table are found the Atlantic Monthly, 
Century, Country Life, Harper's Magazine, Good Housekeeping, 
Woman's Home Companion, Popular Mechanics, Scientific 
American, Scribner's, American Magazine, Cosmopolitan, Nat- 
ional Geographic, Review of Reviews, St. Nicholas, Youth's 
Companion, Boy's Life, Ladies' Home Journal, Outlook, Satur- 
day Evening Post, American Forest, Forum. The privilege of 
taking these magazines to the homes for one week after they 
have been on the table a month is much appreciated by all 
patrons of the library. 

About one hundred carefully chosen books have been pur- 
chased, and many interesting books have been presented by the 
State Library Commission and Mrs. William Harrington. Their 
generosity is much appreciated. 

In the reading contest arranged for Children's Book Week in 
November 54 pupils of our schools completed the reading of 
five books as required and received Certificates from the State 
Library Commission, which were presented to them by Miss E. 
Louise Jones. This was an unusually large class and shows the 
interest taken by teachers and pupils in the library. Miss Jones 
especially commended our large juvenile department. 

Mrs. Charles N. Downing, our faithful and efficient librarian 
continues in office the coming year. 

The Directors hope the citizens of the town will be pleased 
to grant the usual appropriation and the income from the dog 
fund for the support of the library. 

"He that loveth a book will never want a faithful friend, a 
cheerful companion, an effective comforter/' Isaac Barrows. 

MARION ANDREWS SMITH, 

President Enfield Library Association.

Report of School Committee 



To the Inhabitants of Enfield: — 

Following the suggestion and plan of the State Department 
towards centralization of school work your Committee decided to 
close the Kimball School and transport the pupils of that district 
to the Center Schools. 

This plan seemed the more practical on account of the poor 
condition of the Kimball school building and its equipment 
which could be made fit for modern use only at considerable 
expense for repairs, etc., the increased salary required to secure a 
competent teacher, the disadvantages of mixed grades when 
compared with the many advantages of graded rooms and better 
facilities for school work at the Center. The results have been 
most satisfactory in every way. 

No change has been made in our staff of teachers, the excel- 
lence of whose work is reflected in the satisfactory results achiev- 
ed by the graduates in subsequent High School courses. 

The great need of better light in the School has been met 
by the installation of electric lights in all the rooms so that 
now dark or stormy days are no handicap to the completion of 
the required work at all times. 

In order that the children who do not go home at noon may 
be cared for, arrangements were made with Mrs. Austin to 
maintain supervision during the period of lunch and recreation. 

The S. C. E. has installed a block of swings on the play- 
ground which has been greatly appreciated and other apparatus 
for play and exercise is needed. 

The general health of the children has been excellent through- 
out the year and their general condition has been efficiently taken 
care of by Miss Jackson, the school nurse. 

The Committee requests that parents visit the schools at 
any time, thus personally observing the methods and conditions 
existing and thus adding to that co-operation which is so nec- 
essary in producing the best results. 

WILLARD B. SEGUR, Chairman, 

for the School Committee.

Report of the Superintendent of 

Schools 



To the Schoool Committee: 

It is my privilege to submit for your consideration my 
eighteenth annual report which is the twenty-second in this 
series. 

The per cent of attendance for the school year ending 
June 30, 1925 was 94, two per cent, higher than the year before. 
There were one hundred seventy-two cases of tardiness. I 
call your attention to the fact that ninety-four of these were in 
the Kimball school. In the four Center schools there were 
seventy-eight. 

At the close of the schools in June, Miss Edith Schwarzman, 
teacher in the Kimball, resigned to accept a position in the schools 
of West Springfield. It was thought best to discontinue this 
school and transport the pupils to the schools in the Center 
where they would receive the benefit of graded schools under 
experienced teachers It is impossible to secure teachers of 
experience for an ungraded, rural school and even untrained 
teachers will only remain until they become able to do fairly 
good work. 

Miss Gale, teacher of music resigned early in the year, and 
no one was employed to fill the vacancy. 

Miss Cora Jackson, school nurse, has carried on her work 
with interest and efficiency. Enfield is fortunate in being able to 
retain her for this important work. 

The school buildings have been painted and lights have 
been installed in the rooms in the buildings at the Center. Our 
school buildings are in excellent condition. 

Considering the amount expended for the schools, it is 
remarkable that so much can be accomplished. Nearly all our 
graduates enter high schools, and a large per cent, remain until 
they graduate. They compare favorably with those who have 
had greater advantages. 



39 

It is required by law that physical education shah 4 be taught 
in the public schools A course of training, approved by the 
state board of education, has been placed in the hands of each 
teacher, but very little has been accomplished. "Sitting Up" 
exercises have been given, but, to continue the work satisfactorily 
it will be necessary that material be supplied. 

I recommend that a music teacher be employed; and that 
a sufficient amount of material be purchased to carry on the 
work of physical education as required by the state. 

During the eighteen years that I have had charge of your 
schools I may have made mistakes but I have endeavored to do 
my best. I take this opportunity to thank the committee for 
its confidence and co-operation without which my work must 
have been a failure; the teachers for their loyalty and faithful- 
ness which has made my work with them pleasant and I trust 
helpful, the citizens for their courtesy which has made my visits 
to Enfield, outside the schools, a pleasure. 

Respectfully submitted, 

ALVAN R. LEWIS.

Public Library Report 



To the Citizens of Enfield : — 

The "Enfield Library Association" was organized December 
third, 1881, by contributions of about eight hundred dollars 
from citizens of the town. The library was opened to the public 
January 28th 1882. In 1892 there was a weekly circulation of 
from fifty to eighty books, in 1901, one hundred and thirty-one 
books, in 1925 (with less inhabitants in town) one hundred fifty- 
four and six-tenths, and 1926 an increase to one hundred and 
sixty-one. This increase is gratifying, as it shows the interest 
taken in the library by the children and young people. The to- 
tal number of books in the library is 8,465, divided > into non- 
fiction 4,175, fiction 2,743, juvenile 1,537. 

The Association subscribes for Harper's Magazine, Century, 
Atlantic Monthly, Country Life, Good Housekeeping, Woman's 
Home Companion, Popular Mechanics, Scribner's, Scientific 
American, Natonal Geographic, Cosmopolitan, Review of Re- 
views, St. Nicholas, Youth's Companion, Ladies' Home Journal, 
Outlook. The State sends us American Forest and Boy's Life, 
and friends kindly bring in The Literary Digest and Forum. 

From the many new books published the Association has pur- 
chased 48 fiction, 23 juvenile and 14 non-fiction, and the State 
Library Commisssion sent 49 attractive juvenile books and 2 
non-fiction. Mrs. Wlliam Harrington has continued her gener- 
ous gift of books. Two non-fiction have been received from 
Rev. John S. Curtis, one fiction from Mrs. B. L. Wheeler of 
Springfield and a book on radio from H. Morgan Ryther. 



44 



These gifts are much appreciated. 

The Enfield Post of the American Legion has taken charge of 
the effects of the old Grand Army Post, and has placed the rec- 
ords, charter, flag and Bible in the custody of the library. 

On November 16th exercises in connection with ''Good Book 
Week" were held in the chapel. Miss Ruth Pead, children's 
librarian at the Forest Park branch of the Springfield Library 
gave an interesting and helpful talk on "Children's Reading." 
Thirty-six reading certificates and one honor certificate were 
presented to the children. This means that two hundred books 
had been read by the pupils of our schools, surely a fine record. 

The librarian attended the eleventh Annual Library Institute 
held at Fitchburg in May. The library is fortunate in again 
having the efficient services of Mrs. Charles N. Downing, as 
librarian the coming year. 

The directors ask that the citizens of the town grant the usual 
appropriation and the income from the dog fund for the support 
of the library. 

"No matter what his rank or position may be, the lover of 
books is the richest and happiest of the children of men."

"ention is called to the following action of the school com-

"Voted thai if a child has a birthday any time after January 
1st to April 1st inclusive, and is five years old on that birthday, 
he may enter school the following September." 



Report of School Committee 



To the Inhabitants of Enfield : — 

Your school committee respectfully submits the following re- 
port. 

The most important problem to confront us this year was the 
selection of a school superintendent, jointly with Belchertown, 
to succeed Mr. Lewis, retired. After careful consideration of 
the matter and thorough investigation of a number of excellent 
candidates, the joint committee agreed upon securing Mr. 
Knight. His qualifications, experience, knowledge of rural 
needs and record as a constructive administrator of school af- 
fairs made the choice unanimous. It is not an easy matter to 
assume a new management and work out the details of improve- 
ment in a few weeks time, nevertheless, Mr. Knight is proving 
his efficiency. 

Mr. Randolph was secured to take the place of Miss Cutting, 
resigned and he is cooperating most satisfactorily with Mr. 
Capen in the upper grades. The other teachers are retained in 
their respective grades. 

We must give to the children of Enfield the best in the way 
of education so that they may meet those of other towns on an 
equal basis of preparedness rather than the least degree inferior. 
New methods call for new measures and your attention is di- 
rected to plans as outlined in the report of the Superintendent. 

WILLARD B. SEGUR, Chairman 



Report of Superintendent of Schools 



To Members of the Enfield School Committee : 

In submitting my first annual report, and the twenty-fourth re- 
port made by union superintendents to Enfield committees, I wish 
to state that of necessity little can be shown as accomplished in 
the brief time that I have served as superintendent of your 
schools. Perhaps it may not be presuming to take a small amount 
of space in which I may point out to the citizens of the town a 
need which seems to apply with peculiar force to our town at this 
time. 

For a period of years, a great feeling of uncertainty has per- 
vaded the several communities scattered up and down the Swift 
River valley. Because of this uncertainty as to the future exis- 
tence of the towns, programs of building and expansion such as 
many communities have engaged in have not been undertaken. 
This is not at all surprising and readily accounts for accommo- 
dations which are given the boys and girls in the first four 
grades. To build is out of the question, but with the leaving of 
Enfield as the ultimate alternative, comes the responsibility of 
preparing our boys and girls so that they may be able to cope 
with the young people in the towns to which they go. This, then, 
is our real problem. 

Ernest W. Butterfield, Commissioner of New Hampshire 
Schools, in an address given before the New England Associa- 
tion of School Superintendents, November, 1925, said: "There 
are but two essentials — the learning pupil and the teaching 
teacher." Commissioner Butterfield inferred that pupils must be 



49 



able and willing to learn, and that teachers must have the desire 
and ability to teach. With this thought in mind the problem re- 
solves itself down to the need of backing the schools with con- 
structive moral support, and, financial suffort as well. 

The readers of this report will doubtless say that Enfield in its 
last days cannot afford to pay salaries that will attract trained 
teachers. Average salaries considerably in excess of those paid 
at present could have been paid during the year just passed for 
so small an additional cost as to be negligible. To be explicit, 
salaries averaging $1,100.00 per teacher could have been paid at 
an additional cost to the town of Enfield of only $61.00. In 
other words, the expenditures for teaching and transportation to 
schools within the town totaled within $61.00 of the amount above 
which the State of Massachusetts would have reimbursed any ex- 
penditures for teachers' salaries not in excess of $1,100.00 per 
teacher, and additional transportation within the town. Never, in 
the history of Massachusetts has a more liberal policy of state re- 
imbursement been in force, and never has the town whose valua- 
tion is small, had so great an incentive to help herself as at pres- 
ent. In this connection the amount for the taxpayer to consider is 
not the gross appropriation but the net cost to the town. 

Last February, the town of Enfield appropriated $12,000.00 
for the support of her schools. There was a balance of more than 
$500.00 which reverted to the treasury. The net cost to the tax- 
payers was only about one-half of the total expenditure. The 
state reimbursements plus tuitions paid by parents in neighbor- 
ing town approximately equalled the amount raised by taxation. 

A last word about costs. For the year ending June 30, 1926, 
the cost per high school pupil for instruction in the Belchertown 
high school on a basis of average membership, and not including 
transportation, superintendent's salary, or interest on bonds, was 
$133.00. The Belchertown school committee, in consideration of 
the above fact, raised the tuition rate from $90.00 to $125.00 per 
pupil With this charge in mind, parents and the pupils them- 
selves should strive to keep attendance as high as possible, 



50 



Parents, your superintendent urges your co-operation. Visit 
the schools. Bring your words of commendation to the teachers, 
and your troubles to the superintendent. He has a regular office 
hour twice a month as is noted elsewhere in this report, and if 
there is need, he will have one oftener. If necessary, call him at 
his home, Belchertown 29. and an appointment will be arranged. 
Your children are your most valuable possession and their interest 
is of most vital concern to you ; in keeping an office hour in En- 
field, we wish to assist you by giving you an opportunity to dis- 
cuss frankly the various little difficulties that stand between your 
child and his best educational welfare. 

In conclusion I would urge that an appropriation equal to the 
needs of the occasion be raised. Let us remember that we can e- 
rect no monument more enduring in the minds of the sons and 
daughters of the town that will soon be no more, than the memory 
and appreciation of the liberality shown by their parent town in 
enabling them to lay the foundation stone of an education that 
will help them to compete favorably with the youth of other com- 
munities.

Report of School Nurse 



Mr. H. C. Knight 
Superintendent of Schools 

During the four months I have acted as School Nurse I have 
personally examined all the pupils for minor physical defects, 
examined for vision and hearing all above the second grade, 
weighed all present each month, and in September measured and 
worked out the normal weights (with the aid of your teachers') 
of all pupils, sending notifications to parents of all lower grade 
children who were seriously under-weight. 

Much interest has been shown by the children in all the rooms 
in the tooth-brushing contests, and it was with difficulty that we 
could choose only two winners in each room as practically all 
mouths showed signs of efficient use of the tooth-brush. And 
when care of the teeth becomes a fixed habit, we feel that the 
corner-stone to good health has been laid. 

Thanking the teachers, pupils and committee for their kindly 
cooperation with me. I am 

Sincerely, 

MRS. GRACE HOAG, School Nurse

Public Library Report 



To the Citizens of Enfield : — 

A prominent educator has said "a college training is an excel- 
lent thing, but, after all, the better part of every man's training! 
is that which he gives himself, and it is for this that a good libra- 
ry should furnish the opportunity and the means." 

The Enfield Library Association is trying to provide the 
"good library" by its purchase of books suited to varying ages 
and interests, selected from the best of recent publications, one 
hundred and thirty-two being secured in nineteen hundred and 
twenty-seven, also by its subscription to the leading magazines, 
through Mr. Robert E. Davis, a native of Enfield. The maga- 
zines to be found on the table are: Harper's Magazine, Century, 
Atlantic Monthly, Country Life, Good Housekeeping, Woman's 
Home Companion, Popular Mechanics, Scribner's, St. Nicholas, 
Youth's Companion, Scientific American, National Geographic, 
Cosmopolitan, Review of Reviews, Ladies' Home Journal, Out- 
look. The State Librarv Commission sends us American Forest 

J 

and Boy's Life. 

We wish to express our thanks and appreciation for the gift of 
books, to the State Library Commission for fourteen juveniles 
and one non-fiction, to Mrs. William Harrington for twenty-six 
fiction, to Miss Bartro for two juveniles, to Mrs. H. M. Downing 
one fiction, to Mrs. H. D. Paine for one fiction, to R. B. Downing 
one fiction and to Rev. John S. Curtis for two non-fiction. 

The circulation of books and magazines for the year was 
9,533, an average of 183 per week. Since September, the library 



43 



has been open on Tuesday evenings in addition to the usual Sat- 
urday afternoon and evening opening. 

The resignation of Mrs. Edith Hunt Downing, owing to re- 
moval from town, was accepted with regret as her experience in 
library work made her a valuable member of the Association. 
We were, however, very fortunate in securing Mrs. Marian 
Thayer Zappey as secretary and treasurer, she having previously 
served us in this capacity. 

It is a pleasure to state that Mrs. Charles N. Downing will a- 
gain serve us as librarian. We were represented by our librarian 
at the twenty-second Annual Library Institute under the State 
Division of Public Libraries, held at the Westfield Normal 
School, May 2-5 inclusive and the spring meeting of the Western 
Massachusetts Library Club at the Westfield Atheneum May5, 
thus keeping the Enfield library in touch with new methods and 
developments in library work. 

In observance of "Good Book Week," on November 18th, a 
pantomime illustrating the founding of the Enfield Library, also 
recitations and songs were given by the pupils of the public 
schools. Through the generosity of the Quabbin Club, Mrs. . A 
B. Beaumont of Amherst, in a most delightful manner entertained 
with a program of story telling. Seventy-eight reading and ten 
honor certificates were presented to the children. Reading of 
five books is required for a certificate and twenty books, five be- 
ing non-fiction, for an honor certificate which means that five 
hundred and ninety books had been read, a demonstration of the 
value of the library to the young people of the community. 

The directors feel sure the citizens of the town will be pleased 
to grant, as they have for so many years, the income from the 
dog fund for the use of the library, and would appreciate an 'ap- 
propriation. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MARION ANDREWS SMITH 

Pres. Enfield Library Assn.

Attention is called to the following action of the school com- 
mittee : 

"Voted that if a child has a birthday any time after January 
1st to April 1st inclusive, and is five years old on that birthday, 
he may enter school the following September." 



Report of School Committee 



To the Inhabitants of Enfield : — 

Your school committee fully appreciates the burden it bears in 
the supervision of the education of the children of this communi- 

ty. 

We realize that the least we can do is to give to them the best 
schooling possible throughout the prescribed eight grades. The 
courses and methods are given us by the State Board of Educa- 
tion and are not surpassed by any state in this country. Success 
must come through harmony, eagerness and cooperation on the 
part of all concerned. Your school committee and superintendent 
were convinced, that, to accomplish this more fully , a change in 
our teaching force was necessary. 

We were obliged to "hew to the line" and, consequently, with 
malice towards none, an entire new corps of teachers w r as secured 
for this year. After an extensive investigation of a number of 
applicants. Miss Ross, Mrs. Berry, Miss Dyer and Miss Savage 
were selected on account of the superior recommendations pre- 
sented, their up-to-date qualifications and methods to coincide 
with those of the State Board, together with our belief that they 
would instill new life and interest in the classes they were to 
teach. We are aware of the futility of trying to please everyone, 
individually, but we believe, that, collectively, the parents and 
guardians of our school children realize that we are providing, by 
means of correct and modern methods, an education comparable 
with that of any other town. 

The closing of the Kimball school, although opposed by some 



48 



at first is now approved by all. 

On account of the resignation of Mrs. Hoag, school nurse, a 
new nurse was secured — Miss Mansfield of Belchertown, whose 
work is proving very satisfactory. 

We earnestly trust we may receive the support and coopera- 
tion of all and are gl ad to discuss matters of school administra- 
tion with parents whenever they are in doubt or fail to under- 
stand the policy adopted. 

We wish to express our satisfaction (in the higher education 
offered in the different courses at the Belchertown High School 
and to congratulate the Enfield pupils upon their good standing 
and especially those who have attained honor and prize winning 
rank. 

Whether Enfield is destined to an existence, long or short, we 
must not lower our educational standard, and it is our endeavor 
to enable our boys and girls to acquire proficiency in the pre- 
scribed courses at the same time they are learning to learn how to 
learn 

THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE 

Willard B. Segur, Chairman 



Report of Superintendent of Schools 



Members of the School Committee, 
Ladies and Gentleman : — 

The work of the Enfield schools has been subjected to a period 
of change and reorganization which has had for its goal the best 
welfare of the boys and girls of the town. That there has been a 
measure of success is recognized by the testimonies of parents. 
That there is yet much to do is realized by all. 

The peculiar conditions under which Enfield is placed bring 
home in a very forcible way the fact that she is faced with a 
problem different from that of the ordinary town. First, we are 
bound to have a transient population. This affects the schools,, 
and means that pupils will come and go. The progress of this 
class cannot in most instances be constant, because children as 
well as adults require a period of time for readjustment. The 
enrolment as of the first week in September, 1927, was 113. 
Since that time 32 new pupils have entered and 28 have left. Of 
the 60 changes in enrolment 34 have taken place in the primary 
room. 

A second problem has to do with the health work in the schools. 
Because of the transient character of the population in our com- 
munity, the number of contacts with the outside world is in- 
creased and the potential frequency of outbreak of communicable 
diseases is increased. From the school standpoint, an efficient 
health program becomes more and more a necessity. In the not 
far distant future, the work of the nurse can be increased prof- 
itably. The exact nature of the health problems is hard to define 
at the present, but problems are sure to present themselves. 



50 



Your superintendent wishes to commend the teachers for their 
devotion to and interest in their work. Their zeal cannot fail to 
be reflected in the interest of the pupils in their work. 

The splendid cooperation of the librarian, Mrs. Downing, and 
Miss Smith and all who assisted in making the Library Week 
program a success is greatly appreciated. 

The Quabbin club has voted to appropriate for use about the 
school grounds a part of the sum raised several years ago. This 
is also appreciated as well as the interest of citizens of the town. 

The Bolenius reading system has beeen introduced as the basal 
text for grade one. This text is scientific as well as new, and is 
used by many progressive school systems in the state. It aims 
not merely to assist the child to gain mastery of a printed vocab- 
ulary, but it furnishes the means to the teacher for testing i the 
child's understanding of the printed page. In other words, it 
aims to teach a child to read instead of merely pronounce words. 

Silent reading texts for use as supplementary readers have 
been furnished grades three and four. These, too, cause the 
child to think, and thinking is the means by which one learns. 

Other new texts are needed, and I hope they may be obtained 
during the coming year. 

In conclusion may I stress the fact that rigid economy has been 
practised, and while the amount spent is the largest in the history 
of Enfield, the net cost is not so great 'an increase as might at 
first be thought. The total expenditures for schools during the 
school year was . $15,000.00 

Receipts from all sources 7,812.19 



-Net cost to the town was $7,187.81 

In closing this, my second annual report and the twenty-fifth 
report of superintendent of schools, I want to express my appre- 
ciation of the support of the committee. Having a regular time 
each month for meetings is especially helpful and should be ap- 
preciated by townspeople as well as by teachers and superintend- 
ent. 

Respectfully submitted, 
HERMAN C. KNIGHT, Superintendent

Report of School Nurs6 



Mr. Herman C. Knight 
Superintendent of Schools 

Dear Sir :- 

I herewith submit my report as school nurse from October 10, 
1927, until December 31, 1927. 

School visits 8 

Home visits 12 

Number pupils weighed and measured 91 

Number pupils underweight (3 pounds or more) 33 

Inspections by nurse (hair, teeth and hands) 65 

Notices sent for Pediculosis 1 

Skin disease (not contagious) 1 

A few pupils have not been successfully vaccinated. It is ad- 
vised that each child be vaccinated before entering school. 

A clinic for mentally retarded children was held by Dr. Whit- 
ney and Miss Davis, psychologist, of the state hospital at North-/ 
ampton, at which seventeen pupils were examined. I assisted at 
this clinic, also visited the home of every child examined, and re- 
ported the social histories of each one. 

A complete physical examination will be given each pupil by 
Dr. Segur after the Christmas vacation and the parents will re- 
ceive notices of all defects found. 

Several pupils have had the diphtheria toxin anti-toxin treat- 
ment. It is hoped that all of the pupils will soon have a chance 
to receive this immunization. Diptheria is a very dangerous dis- 



53 



ease, but it can be prevented by the use of diphtheria toxin anti- 
toxin. 

I appreciate your help and splendid cooperation, Mr. Knight, 
also that of the teachers and parents in carrying on the health 
work. 

Respectfully, 

KATHRYNE MANSFIELD, R. N.

Public Library Report 



To tlie Citizens of Enfield: 

In these trying days which hold so many problems for all oui 
organizations, it is pleasant to be able to sound a cheerful note, 
and report the most successful year in the history of the Enfield 
Library Association. The library has been open on Tuesday 
evening and Saturday afternoon and evening, with a circulation 
of books and magazines of 10,678, an average of 205 plus per 
week. 

The total number of books in the library is 8,740 ; non fiction, 
4,224; fiction 2,901; juvenile, 1,615. The reading table is sup- 
plied with the best in current literature. The magazines are 
Harper's Magazine, Century, Atlantic Monthly, Country Life, 
Good Housekeeping, Woman's Home Companion, Popular Me- 
chanics, Scribners, St. Nicholas, Youth's Companion, Scientific 
American, National Geographic, Cosmopolitan, Review of Re- 
views, Ladies Home Journal, Outlook. The State Library Com 
mission sends us American Forest and Boy's Life. 

Deposits of books, under the care of the teachers, are made iiv 
three of the school rooms, thus forming a library for reference, 
and the study of general literature. 

We gratefully acknowledge the gift of 42 juvenile books and 
one non fiction from the state library commission, one non fiction 
from Dr. W. B. Segur, one from H. Morgan Ryther, one from 
Massachusetts Department of Agriculture, one from Miss Mabel 
Carter, East Longmeadow, one from Mrs. Susan J. Crane, one 
from Howard C. Robbins, New York, two from Rev. John S. 



34 



Curtis, one fiction from the Quabbin Club. 

In observance of Children's Book Week, on the afteroon of 
November fifteenth, through the fine co-operation of the teachers, 
the librarian, and the Quabbin club, an interesting program of 
songs and pantomime was given by the pupils of the schools, and 
Mrs. Beaumont of Amherst, in her usual charming manner, en- 
tertained all with her story telling hour. The President of the 
Library Asociation presented 85 certificates from the State Li- 
brary Commission to those children who had read and reported 
on five books for their grade, an increase of seven certificates 
over 1927, and twelve honor certificates to pupils who had read 
twenty books, five being non fiction, an increase of two certificates 
over 1927. 

The Massachusetts Board of Free Public Library Commission- 
ers offers the certificates with the desire, not to incite the children 
to read many books, or to make the reading in any way compul- 
sory, but to encourage them to use the public libraries and to be- 
come acquainted with and enjoy a few of the best books. The 
number of certificates presented shows us our Enfield library is 
used and appreciated by the children and will be a lasting in- 
fluence in their lives. 

In again securing Mrs. Charles N. Downing to serve as our 
librarian for the ensuing year, we are sure the work will be 
faithfully and well done. 

The directors deeply appreciate the income from the dog fund 
for so many years, voted for the use of the library, and would be 
grateful for the one hundred dollars formerly appropriated. 
Respectfully submitted, 

MARION ANDREWS SMITH

Report of School Committee 



To tlie Citizens of En field: 

In the administration of school affairs, your School Committee 
exercises the dual responsibility of following the definite re- 
quirements of the State Board of Education as well as adjusting 
many incidental and local matters on their own initiative. 

While it is impossble to satisfy the wish of everyone, we en- 
deavor to adjust the work of our schools so that each pupil, if 
earnest in the work, will be soundly prepared to go on from 
grade to grade and graduate with a strong fundamental educa- 
tion which will permit the boy or girl to advance to higher stud- 
ies with satisfaction and success. 

Our teachers are proving themselves sincere in their work and 
there is a noticeable cooperation between pupil and teacher — an 
esprit de corps — which is sure to bring out the best in each and 
secure in the end the results desired. 

Books that are up to date have been supplied both for the re- 
quired and collateral study, and a modest amount of playground 
equipment will soon be available for safe and healthful physical 
exercise. 

Our superintendent has constantly been alert to assist us in 
every way, and we suggest that parents avail themselves of the 
opportunity of a conference with him at his office to clear up any- 
thing not understood by them, to offer a suggestion or submit a 
grievance. In his report will be found explanations of certain 
details and methods which are adopted for the betterment of all. 

We are pleased at the number of our former pupils who are 



39 



continuing courses of higher education in other cities and towns 
and, in many instances, the high standing attained by them. 

The health of the children and any physical weakness has been 
carefully watched and guarded by our School Nurse. 

We have been able to supply an Instructor of Music which has 
been greatly needed for a long time and we hope this may be- 
come a permanent adjunct to our force of teachers. 

It is our opinion that our schools were never in a more efficient 
condition and that the children of Enfield are being given an op- 
portunity for early education not surpassed in any rural commu- 
nity. 

Respectfully submitted, 

THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE 
WILLARD B. SEGUR, Chairman 






Report of Superintendent of Schools 



Members of the Enfield Sclwol Committee, 
Ladies and Dr. Segur: 

I hereby submit my third annual report and the twenty-fifth 
report in the series of annual reports submitted by union superin- 
tendents. 

In making this report I wish to enumerate certain educational 
principles which seem to be worthy of the consideration of the 
tax payers of the town. 

EDUCATIONAL PRINCIPLES AND POLICIES 

a. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts has been a constant 
and consistent advocate of education from the early days in its 
history to the present time, in order that it might insure its own 
self-preservation. 

b. There can not consistently be a standard of excellence in 
education for the child living in the urban community, and an- 
other for the child whose home is in the rural area. 

c. Money appropriated for education in any community, pri- 
marily is not for superintendent, teacher, janitor or bus driver, 
but for the child. 

d. Educational opportunity, in any community in order to be 
most helpful, must vary with the capacity and needs of different 
individuals in that community. 

CHANGES IN POLICIES 

It is the first three principles which have been responsible for 
policies leading to the earlier changes in the teaching staff, to 



41 



the purchase of new books and maps, to the introduction of the 
teaching of music by a special teacher of that subject, to the pur- 
chase of playground equipment which will be installed with the 
coming of the spring months, and to the giving of health teach- 
ing a place in our school program. 

The principle relating to the fitting of the opportunity offered 
to the child to his particular ability is one that is of especial in- 
terest to the tax payers of Enfield, since it has a direct bearing 
upon the increase in taxes which would follow, should there be an 
attempt to equalize the opportunity offered to children who might 
form a class for special instruction. 

Section 46 of Chapter 71 of the Revised Laws provides for 
such instruction as follows : "The school committee of every town 
shall annually ascertain, under regulations prescribed by the de- 
partment and the commissioner of mental diseases, the number of 
children three years or more retarded in mental development in 
attendance upon its public schools, or of school age and resident 
therein. At the beginning of each school year, the committee of 
every town where there are ten or more such children shall estab- 
lish special classes for their instruction according to their mental 
attainments, under regulations prescribed by the department. 
No child under the control of the department of public welfare 
or of the child welfare division of the institutions department of 
the city of Boston who is three years or more retarded in mental 
development within the meaning of this section, shall, after com- 
plaint made by the school committee to the department of public 
welfare of said division, be placed in a town which is not re- 
quired to maintain a special class as provided for in this sec- 
tion." 

A clinic from the Northampton State Hospital was held a year 
ago to determine the number eligible to such a class, and suffi- 
cient material for such a special class was found; but it was 
found that to organize a class, furnish it with a teacher trained 
for the work, equip a room with special material, furnish a jani- 
tor and heat, was to add a burden that was unnecessary if the 



42 



part of the law was carried out which provides that the child un- 
der the control of the department of public welfare shall not be 
placed in a town which is not required to maintain a special class 
as provided for in Section 46. 

Accordingly the school committee made complaint to the De- 
partment of Public Welfare and at the opening of the fall term, 
certain state wards who would have been members of the special 
class, had it been formed, were removed from the schools, either 
to stay at the homes where they have been living, to go to work, 
or to attend school in towns where the special class is maintained. 
This policy had to be adopted to protect the tax payer against 
the cost of such a class, the organization of which, considering 
the present status of affairs, seems unwise. 

At the opening of school in September, the primary school was 
in charge of Miss Addie Dyer of Plainneld, who has had teach- 
ing experience in several towns in the western part of the state, 
as well as training at North Adams Normal school, and grades 
five and six were in charge of Miss Mary Lyons, a graduate of 
Framingham Norma) school. The lower Intermediate and the 
Grammar room are again taught by Misses Mary Dyer and 
Florence Ross, and the quality of work being done by them shows 
the wisdom of retaining teachers, so far as possible, for more 
than one year. 

The interest in the schools by the townspeople is reflected by 
the number of visitors who avail themselves of opportunities to 
visit the work of the schools and who attend the special exercises, 
of which there have been several during the past year. Among 
the events of special interest was the observance of Library 
Week, which had for its climax a special program in charge of 
Mrs. Charles Downing, librarian, assisted by Miss Marion 
Smith, a trusteee of the local library, who presented 85 reading 
certificates to pupils who had read five books, and 12 honor cer- 
tificates to pupils who had read twenty books. 

Through the courtesy of the Quabbin club, the children were 
again favored with a story telling hour in charge of Mrs. Grace 



43 



Beaumont. This treat was enjoyed by all and at a later date, 
through the generosity of friends of the schools, Mrs. Beaumont, 
who is the music teacher in the schools, entertained the parents 
with song and story. This treat was enjoyed by all who were 
privileged to hear her. 

The attention of the readers of this report is directed to the re- 
port of the school nurse. Miss Mansfield has proved her efficiency 
and we are indeed fortunate in having her serve in this capacity. 

The prevalence of measles during the late autumn in Enfield 
and in surrounding towns has made us realize the necessity of 
observing some precautions in regard to contagious diseases. The 
attention of parents is directed to that part of Section 55, Chap- 
ter 71, Revised Laws, which outlines the procedure necessary 
when a pupil has been absent on account of contagious or Infec- 
tious disease. The excerpt is as follows: "The school committee 
shall cause to be referred to a school physician for examination 
and diagnosis every child returning to school without a certifi- 
cate from the board of health after absence on account of infec- 
tious or contagious disease." 

Our May Day program last spring emphasized several import- 
ant health features, including posture, weight and teeth. The 
state department of health is making early preparations for the 
continuance of this work and is urging us to stress the work with 
the teeth. The cooperation of all is earnestly requested. 

During the past year organized play has made a definite con- 
tribution to the school life. By means of supervised play, lessons 
in fairness, courtesy, and team work are developed, and your su- 
perintendent is glad to announce at this time that not only wil|l 
the regular supervised play be continued, but that some play 
ground equipment has been purchased ready for installation in 
the spring. The equipment includes a standard three-swing rut- 
fit, a horizontal bar, trapeze and swinging ring combination, and 
a four-board seesaw outfit. Money from the community play 
ground fund was contributed, which is greatly appreciated. 

In closing this report, due acknowledgement is made of the co- 



44 



operative spirit shown by the people with whom the superintend- 
ent is working, including janitor, teachers and committee. 

Respectfully submitted, 

HERMAN C. KNIGHT, Superintendent

At the Child Health Day celebration which was held in May. 
a splendid program was carried out. Child Health Day is that 
day on which pupils in the schools receive recognition for health 
work they have done. 

In the play, "Our Health Day", which was part of the celebra- 
tion, tags were awarded to each child in school who met the 
standard in weight, posture or teeth. These tags were Issued by 
the State Department of Health. The weight tag indicated that 
the child was up to standard weight (a range of not more than 10 
per cent below or 20 per cent above). The posture tag indicated 
good posture while sitting, standing and walking. The teeth tag 
indicated clean teeth, healthy gums, and a dental certificate (a 
slip signed by a dentist showing that all the dental work had 
been done). Each child who was awarded tags for weight, pos- 
ture and teeth was given a blue arm-band for special recognition. 
A good number of tags was awarded this year and it is hoped 
that a greater number of children will receive them at our next 
Health Day celebration. 

An important piece of work this year was the Pre-school Con- 
ference which was held in June. Only one parent took advan- 
tage of this splendid opportunity to have her child examined by 
the school physician. The examination of the children before 
they enter school is a step in the right direction and the benefits 
derived will be far reaching if the defects found are remedied. 
The children will enter school in better physical condition, as 
many defects which are found at the conference might be pre- 
vented by attention before school age. 

I appreciate your help, Mr. Knight, also that of the teachers 
and parents. 

Respectfully, 

KATHRYNE MANSFIELD, R. N.

Public Library Report 



To the Citizens aj Enfidld : 

To the query of James Russell Lowell, "Have you ever rightly 
considered what the mere ability to read means? That it is the 
key that admits us to the whole world of thought and fancy and 
imagination. That it enables us to see with the keenest eyes, hear 
with the finest ears and listen to the sweetest voices of all time." 
The Enfield library has answered with a circulation for the year 
1929 of 10,398 books and magazines, an average of nearly 204 
per week, twenty more than in 1927 when the town had a larger 
population. This surely shows an 'appreciation of the ability to 
read and of the books carefully chosen by the Enfield Library 
Association. 

The total number of books in the library is 8,848 ; non fiction, 
4,955; fiction, 2,955; juvenile, 1,638. During the year, 68 fic- 
tion, 12 juvenile and 25 non fiction have been purchased. 
Friends in town have presented eight non fiction and one fiction, 
and the State Library Commission sent us 27 juveniles, and re- 
newed magazine subscriptions to Boy's Life, Outlook, and Amer- 
ican Forest and Forest Life. We appreciate the interest in the 
library expressed by these gifts. 

The Enfield Library Association subscribes through the agen- 
cy of Mr. Robert E. Davis (a native of Enfield) for Harper's 
Magazine, Century, Atlantic Monthly, Country Life, Good 
Housekeeping, Woman's Home Companion, Modern Priscilla, 
Popular Mechanics, Scribner's, St. Nicholas, Scientific American, 



49 



National Geographic, Cosmopolitan, Review of Reviews, Ladies' 
Home Journal, Youth's Companion, now combined with The A- 
merican Boy. 

In observance of Children's Book Week, on the afternoon of 
November 27th, a program of songs, piano solos and trios, two 
violins and cornet with piano accompaniment, with playlets, was 
given by the pupils of the public schools. Through the generos- 
ity of the Quabbin Club, Mrs. Grace D. Beaumont of Amherst 
fascinated all with an hour of story telling. The president of the 
Enfield Library Association presented certificates from the Mas- 
sachusetts State Library Commission to 62 pupils who had read 
the required five books, and four honor certificates to those who 
hod read twenty books, five of them being non fiction. This is an 
achievement in which we may well take pride, as it means many 
hours passed in reading good books. 

We are pleased to announce that Mrs. Charles N. Downing 
will again serve as our faithful and capable librarian. The En- 
field Library was represented by its librarian at the annual Li- 
brary Institute held at the Fitchburg Normal School April 29 to 
May 2nd. Fifty-five librarians were registered and others came 
in for one or more sessions. These meetings stimulate interest 
in library work and keep one informed of the latest and best 
methods. 

The Enfield Library Association records with deep sorrow the 
death of three members : Mrs. Loraine Andrews Smith, a charter 
member, former resident, and for many years a director. Alfred 
Waldo Smith, always deeply interested in the library and its wel- 
fare. Mrs. Susan Underwood Crane, a director since the death 
of her sister, Miss Sarah F. Underwood; a lover of books and 
reading, she gladly labored to promote the best interests of the 
library and render it a valuable asset to her beloved Enfield. 

The directors are grateful for the income from the dog fund 
voted for the use of the library, and hope the citizens will grant 
its continuance, and they would appreciate the usual appropria- 



50 

tion of one hundred dollars. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MARION ANDREWS SMITH 

President Enfield Library Association

Report of School Committee 



To the Citizens of Enfield : 

Your school committee submits the following report : 

We ask that the reports of our Superintendent, School Nurse 
and Music Supervisor be carefully read. 

Mr. Knight is always attentive to any problem brought to him 
lo help solve, by parent, guardian, teacher, or committee and 
prompt to act after the solution. 

The office of our Superintendent is open each first and third 
Monday 01 the month irom three to four Jt\ M. and those who a- 
vail themselves of tnis advantage, to place their problems belore 
Mr. Knignt, find him helpful and sympathetic. 

We were able to Keep our same staff of teachers for tne year 
1929-1930, and the same keen interest is shown in their daily 
work as heretofore. Parents and guardians who follow closely 
the work of the schools are pleased to note the progress in the dif- 
ferent subjects taught and the cooperation shown between teachers 
and school nurse in working for health habits, between teachers 
and pupils in working for reliability and self reliance and good 
sportsmanship. 

Those who attended the beautiful Christmas Pageant given by 
the pupils of the eight grades and listened to the singing of the 
carols, so very well rendered, feel much credit is due to our Music 
Supervisor and our teachers who so faithfully carry on. 

The 4-H clubs are being conducted with the boys and girls un- 
der the able leadership of Miss Florence Ross, as extra curricula. 

The rivalry between the four school rooms for gaining highest 



55 



attendance for the month is helpful in making for punctuality and 
dependability. The room having the highest per cent for the cur- 
rent month wins the privilege of having the silk desk flag for the 
following month. 

We respectfully ask that parents and guardians cooperate by 
signing and returning promptly to the teacher, the slips that are 
sent to them, explaining the absence or tardiness of pupil — 
which is a state requirement, as found in the School Laws. 

The best results are obtained by hearty cooperation of all and 
should be fostered. Your committee thanks you for the support 
given as shown by your generous appropriation and goodwill. 

THE SCHOOL COMMITTEE 

GRACE HALE STEVENS 



Report of Superintendent of Schools 



Members oj the E nil eld School Committee 
Ladies and Dr. Segur: 

I submit my fourth annual report and the twenty sixth in the 
series of reports of the superintendent of schools of Enfield since 
it became a member of a school union. 

The school work of the past year has not been marked by 
radical changes. On the contrary, it has been one of quiet, con- 
sistent improvement. There has been no change in teachers. We 
have been free from serious epidemics. Parents are co-oper- 
ating more and more and. it is needless to say, the schools show 
improvement as a result. This is particularly outstanding in the 
music which has been under the able direction of Mrs. Grace 
Beaumont for the past year. 

During the past year there have been the usual red letter days 
when we have endeavored to call parents together to visit us, so 
that they could see for themselves what we were doing. These 
have included Health Day with its special program he'd in 
Grange Hall in the spring : Library Day in November when the 
children gave a program in the chapel with stones told by Mrs. 
Beaumont, sponsored by the Quabbin Club; and the Christmas 
pageant held in the Congregational church, at which time vari- 
ous individuals rendered assistance to the extent that it could be 
called a community-school activity. 

Our total enrolment in our Center school is not much different 
from what it has been. This is due to the large turnover in state 



57 



ward membership. It is not an unusual thing to have a state vis- 
itor remove several pupils in a week and fill their places a few 
days later. This keeps the membership fairly constant, but makes 
the work harder for the teacher in whose room these changes oc- 
cur. With conditions existing as they do, these changes are to be 
expected. The problem, as it presents itself, would seem to 
emphasize the need for a change in organization as time goes on, 
so that an opportunity class under the direction of a teacher 
trained for the work could be available for those children who, 
for whatever reason, were in need of special help. As the num- 
ber of children of .school age in Enfield becomes smaller, this can 
be brought about without increasing the number of teachers, and 
with distinct gain for all concerned. 

During the spring playground equipment was installed. This 
has been enjoyed by all and especially by the younger pupils. 
This could be added to from time to time with profit. 

New books of a character adaptable to the abilities and inter- 
ests of our pupils have been bought as a nucleus of a school li- 
brary. These are much enjoyed and can and should be added to 
from time to time. 

The advisability of procuring the service of a drawing teacher 
for part time instruction is earnestly and seriously recommended. 
There have been, and indeed there are now, pupils in our schools 
who have more than ordinary ability in drawing. This should be 
encouraged and improved. Our modern American life is contin- 
ually demanding that we discriminate in our choice of form and 
color, and school is a legitimate place for instruction, so that an 
intelligent discrimination may be made. That art is an import- 
ant economic factor is given ample testimony by the changes in 
color and design recently made in a popular low-priced car. The 
manufacturer of that car in his earlier production denied all need 
of art and said that he was willing to have any color for his cars 
as long as it was black. Today the Ford car is found in many 
colors and with a much heralded change in body design. While 



5X 



it is hard to say how long the enrolment will warrant such action, 
is would seem wise at the present to offer the pupils of the town 
advantages that will compare favorably with those of other towns 
and it is with that thought in mind that the preceding recommen- 
dation is made. 

May I call the attention of the townspeople to the costs of our 
schools, as indicated by the following tabulation : 

Total paid for support of public schools and 

vocational education for 1929 was $14,656.11 

From the State of Massachusetts were re- 
ceived the following amounts: 

Mass. School Fund, Part II $746.21 

On account of vocational education (House- 
hold Arts pupils, Belchertown, and 
Trade School pupils, Springfield) 

Tuition of State Wards 

Superintendent's salary and expense 

High School tuition 

High School Transportation 

Mass. School Fund, Part I 

Total reimbursements 

Net cost to town $7,654.55 

It is readily seen that the net cost to Enfield is only a little 
more than one-half of the total amount paid out for the support of 
the schools and for all vocational education. Even so, the net 
cost to the town is too large to be wasted, and it is the duty of all 
concerned to make the most of opportunities presented. This in- 
cludes pupils, parents, and those standing in loco parentis. We 
as educators have a serious task which is best performed by us 
when the community is working with us. And so we urge every- 
one interested in the educational welfare of the youth of our town 
to render loyal support where it is deserved, to offer constructive

criticism at all times, and to remember that we, too, are anxious 
to do our part. 

You are urged to read the reports of Miss Mansfield, our 
nurse, and Mrs. Beaumont, supervisor of music. 

Appreciation of the interest shown and help given by the com- 
mittee, the teachers, nurse and all others who have the welfare of 
the Enfield schools at heart is hereby expressed. 

Very respectfully submitted, 

HERMAN C. KNIGHT, Superintendent 

January 10, 1930 



Report of Supervisor of Music 



Mr. Hermcm C. Knight 
Superintendent of Schawls 

Dear Sir: 

The music work in the Enfield schools has been entirely re- 
organized during the past year. New text books have been pur- 
chased, providing adequate material for steady advancement and 
systematic study throughout the year. The children in the upper 
grades have been handicapped by lack of sufficient training while 
in the lower grades, but by diligent work, they have made good 
progress. With the unusually intelligent and enthusiastic co- 
operation of all the teachers, it has been possible to make a most 
satisfactory progress in all the grades, and we have, at least, 
made a start toward realizing some of the aims of school music: 
(1) Love of singing, (2) Interpretation — catching the spirit of 
song, (3) Production of pleasing tone, (4) Acquiring of tech- 
nique of reading. 

It is to be hoped that in the future some work in music appre- 
ciation, using a phonograph and special records, may be included 
in the music work. 

The supervisor has made two trips a month to Enfield to plan 
and direct the music work. 

Respectfully submitted, 

GRACE D. BEAUMONT, Music Supervisor

In connection with the clinic for mentally retarded children 
which was held last January, I made home visits and wrote the 
social histories of three children. The examinations were given 
by Dr. Whitney and Miss Parker, psychologist, of the Northamp- 
ton State Hospital. 

I appreciate your help, Mr. Knight, also that of the parents, 
teachers and Dr. Segur, in carrying out this health work. 

Respectfully,

Report of Library Trustees 



To the Citizens of Enfield: 

During the year 1930, 9,847 books and magazines, an average 
of 189 plus per week, were taken by patrons of the Enfield li- 
brary. The total number of books in the library is 8,920. Of the 
seventy- three books purchased, the non-fiction were especially 
interesting. The fiction and juveniles were chosen from the 
list of best books for libraries — 6 books were gifts, 2 non-fiction 
from Rev. John S. Curtis, 2 fiction from Paul Radasch, 2 non- 
fiction from the State Library Commission. 

The Association subscribes for the following magazines : 
Harper's Magazine, Century, Atlantic Monthly, Scribner's, St. 
Nicholas, Popular Mechanics, Country Life, Good House- 
keeping, Woman's Home Companion, Scientific American, 
Cosmopolitan, Review of Reviews, Ladies' Home Journal, A- 
merican Boy, National Geographic. The State Library Com- 
mission gives us subscriptions to Boy's Life, Outlook, A- 
merican Forests, and Miss Nellie E. Brown gives a subscription 
to McCalls Magazine. 

On the afternoon of November 20th in observance of Chil- 
dren's Book Week an interesting program of recitations and 
music was given by the pupils of the public schools. Miss Anna 
Chase, teacher of the first and second grades entertained all 
with a story telling hour. Fifteen reading certificates and one 
honor certificate from the State Library Commission were pre- 
sented by the president of the Enfield Library Association. 



50 



It is a pleasure to announce that Mrs. Charles N. Downing 
will continue to serve us as librarian the coming year. Mrs. 
Downing attended the Library Institute held at Westfield 
April 28th to May 1st. Fifty-three librarians were registered. 
The addresses were interesting and inspiring. The classes in 
cataloguing and reference work proved very popular and in- 
structive. 

The death of Mrs. Amanda Woods Ewing brought sorrow to 
her many friends, particularly to the members of the Enfield 
Library Association. Mrs. Ewing was a charter member of the 
Association and for many years one of the directors. She was 
deeply interested in the library especially the young people's 
department. 

Additional bookshelves, new rugs, and shades have made the 
library room more attractive. 

The directors hope the citizens of the town will continue to 
grant the income from the dog fund for the use of the library

Report of School Committee 



To the Citizens of Enfield: 

Your school committee submits the following report : 

We ask. that the reports of Superintendent and School Xui»e 
be carefully read. 

The office of our Superintendent is open on first and ihird 
Mondays of each month from three to four P. M. when school is 
in session. The committee ask any parent, guardian or teacher, 
who may have problems relative to the schools they wish solved, 
to visit the Superintendent with the same, and we can assure you, 
yqu will always rind a sympathetic, helpful advisor and one 
quick to act in Mr. Knight. 

We were unable to keep our same staff of teachers for the en-^ 
tire year of 1930, a vacancy being caused in school No. 4 by 
resignation of Addie Dyer Hall, soon after school opened in 
September. We were, however, most fortunate in securing the 
services of Miss Anna Chase of Bennington, Vt.. to fill this 
vacancy, who is doing splendid work in these two grades, having 
had both Normal and Kindergarten training. 

Miss Mary Dyer of school No. 3 resigned her position at the 
close of the school year in June to accept a position in a larger 
place with a higher salary. While Miss Dyer did excellent 
work in these two grades, we feel sure we have a most able suc- 
cessor in Miss Rose Johnson of West Townsend, Mass. 

Miss Jessie Elphinstone of Ludlow. Mass., was secured to fill 
the vacancy caused by resignation of Miss Mary Lyons in June. 
Miss Elphinstone is doing excellent work in this room, having 



55 



formed a special opportunity class for retarded pupils, as extra 
curiculla; this work will assist the pupils to develop any talents 
they may have. 

We were very fortunate in retaining the services of Miss 
Florence Ross for the entire year, who works untiringly with her 
pupils for their success, in whatsoever they undertake. Miss 
Ross at Christmas time, by request, repeated the beautiful 
Christmas pageant given by pupils of the eighth grade the year 
before. Much credit is due Miss Ross and her pupils and all the 
other teachers, for the pageant and carols sung at that time. 

The 4-H club work is also being conducted under the able 
leadership of Miss Ross as extra curricula. 

In June, it was necessary through illness, for Mrs. Grace D. 
Beaumont, our Music Supervisor, to surrender her position, 
which the committee greatly regret, as the music in the schools 
was being brought to a much higher standard. We hope soon to 
continue this good work. 

Much credit is due the School Nurse, Miss Kathryne Mans- 
field, for her hearty cooperation in the health work of the schools. 

The schools this year conducted the Book Week exercises with 
no outside assistance. They were well attended and much ap- 
preciated by all. 

We respectfully ask that parents and guardians sign and re- 
turn promptly to the teacher the slips sent them, explaining the 
absence or tardiness of the pupil — which is a state requirement, 
as found in the School Laws. 

The committee at this time wishes to extend to the citizens of 
Enfield their hearty thanks and appreciation, for their cooper- 
ation and assistance in any way, for the welfare of the schools, 
and the support given by your generous appropriation and 
goodwill. 

Respectfully submitted, 

SCHOOL COMMITTEE 

INEZ L. BROWN, Secretary 



Report of Superintendent of Schools 



Members of the Enfield School Committee: 

Again I submit my annual report. This is my fifth, and the 
twenty-seventh in the series of reports of union superintendents. 

During the year we have continued the painstaking quality of 
work which has come to be a definite part of the school standard. 
Two new teachers, Miss Jessie Elphinstone, a North Adams 
graduate, and Miss Rose Johnson, a Fitchburg Normal graduate, 
were procured during the summer to nil vacancies caused by the 
resignations of Miss Mary Lyons and Miss Mary Dyer, respec- 
tively. Shortly after the school year began, Mrs. Clarence Hall 
announced her wish to be released, and Miss Anna Chase, an- 
other North Adams graduate, was given the school formerly 
taught by Mrs. Hall. The efficient service of the teachers who 
terminated their relation as teachers in our schools is appreciated 
by all who knew them best, and we consider ourselves to be for- 
tunate indeed in securing as successors teachers who are ably 
continuing the work. 

It is a matter of profound regret that Mrs. Grace Beaumont 
should have found it necessary to give up the teaching of music 
in our schools. To find a worthy successor has not proven an 
easy task. It is expected, however, that some arrangement will 
be made whereby music can be taught by a special teacher of that 
subject in the near future. 

With the delcine in the number of families in Enfield comes a 
question as to school population. The following is the enroll- 



57 



ment as of October first, 1930, together with that of a year pre- 
vious : 

1929 1930 

Grade 1 14 20 

Grade 2 8 7 

Grade 3 14 8 

Grade 4 11 . 11 

Grade 5 13 10 

Grade 6 9 11 

Grade 7 7 7 

Grade 8 12 7 

Total number enrolled 88 81 

The foregoing figures indicate that the school population has 
not suffered as much as one might naturally have supposed. It 
should be stated in this connection that three pupils in our schools 
are transported from Prescott. 

A group of children in the upper intermediate room have been 
given the opportunity to do hand work. Miss Elphinstone has 
succeeded in gaining the interest of this group, and as a result 
these pupils are doing work within their range of possibility. 
The experiment seems to be worth while. 

Last spring the parents of the luncheon club members were 
invited to a banquet served by these club members under the 
leadership of Miss Ross. The boys who enrolled as handicraft 
members, with their parents, were guests also. These 4-H club 
activities, while not a part of our regular work, are closely re- 
lated and play an important part in the sum total of the educa- 
tion of the child. 

Parents and friends have had an opportunity to visit us on 
several special occasions, one of which was the Health Day, when 
we had a program of interest. Again we observed Book Week 
by having a special program under the auspices of the local li- 
brary association. The program was in charge of Mrs. Downing, 



58 



librarian, and certificates were presented by Miss Marion Smitn, 
president of the Enfield Library Association. 

In closing this report, your superintendent gratefully acknow- 
ledges the splendid spirit of co-operation which exists, and to 
the teachers, parents, janitor, and especially to the committee 
does he feel that this paragraph of appreciation is due. 

Respectfully submitted, 

HERMAN C. KNIGHT 
January the ninth, 1931.

I wish to thank you, Mr. Knight, also Dr. Segur, the teachers 
and parents, for your helpful co-operation in carrying out the 
health program. 

Respectfully, 

KATHRYNE MANSFIELD, R. N.

Report of Library Trustees 



To the Citizens of Enfield: 

In presenting the report of the Enfield Library Association 
for the year 1931 it is encouraging to note an increase of 218 in 
the circulation of books and magazines over the year 1930, the 
record for 1931 being 10,065. This shows our library has many 
patrons, and an appreciation of the carefully selected books. The 
total number of books in the library is 9,043 — non-fiction 4,319, 
juvenile 1,666, fiction 3,050. 

Subscriptions to the magazines, Boy's Life, Outlook, and 
American Forest were renewed by the State Library Com- 
mission and the Association subscribed for Harper's Magazine, 
Century, Atlantic Monthly, Scribner's, St. Nicholas, Popular 
Mechanics, Country Life, Good Housekeeping, Woman's Home 
Companion, Scientific American, Cosmopolitan, Review of Re- 
views, Ladies' Home Journal, American Boy, the National 
Geographic Magazine. 

During the year 124 books were added to the library, 94 by 
purchase, 27 were presented by the State Library Commission, 
23 were juvenile and 4 non-fiction. Other gifts were one fic- 
tion and one non-fiction from Rev. John S. Curtis, one fiction 
from Mrs. LeRoy Hammond and nine non-fiction from Miss 
Julia Cabot. We are grateful to these donors for their interest 
and gifts. 

In observance of Children's Book Week, November 16th to 
21st, exercises were held in the schools on the afternoon of No- 



52 



vember 20th. The teachers and librarian co-operated in pre- 
paring an interesting and varied program which was well ren- 
dered by the pupils and much enjoyed by their guests. 24 
reading certificates and one honor certificate were presented to 
those pupils who had completed the required reading. 

The Enfield Library Association is fortunate in again having 
the capable and faithful services of Mrs. Charles N. Downing 
as librarian, who will continue in office for the year 1932. 

The directors hope the citizens of the town will continue to 
grant the income from the dog fund for the use of the library 
and the usual appropriation. 

Respectfully submitted, 

MARIOK ANDREWS SMITH 

President Enfield Library Association

Report of School Committee 



To the Citizens of Enfield: 

Your School Committee submits the following report: 

Ten regular meetings of the School Board have been held 
this year for regular business. These meetings are held on the 
third Monday of each month, except July and August. 

At the close of the school year in June, we lost two very effi- 
cient teachers, Miss Florence Ross and Miss Jessie Elphinstone 
by resignation from schools No. 1 and 2, each accepting posi- 
tions in larger schools of advanced education. 

We were, however, most fortunate in securing two able suc- 
cessors to fill these vacancies, Miss Audrey Marshall of North 
Adams and Miss Mary Neuman of Adams, Mass., who are do- 
ing excellent work in these two rooms. These two teachers are 
also working together, with the Girl Reserves and the 4-H Club 
for boys, as extra curricula The outstanding feature of this 
work was the Mother and Daughter Banquet held in November. 
We were most fortunate in retaining the services of Miss Rose 
Johnson and Miss Anna Chase for schools No. 3 and 4. Much 
credit is due these two teachers for the excellent work being 
done in these two rooms. 

In May the usual Health Day program was observed, with 
cards for posture, weight and teeth, given. 

In November, it was thought best to conduct the Book Week 
exercises in each room. This was observed by the pupils telling 



57 



the meaning of Book Week and how books should be cared for, 
impersonating their favorite book and giving a short resume ' >f 
a boo): they had read. State reading certificates were presented. 
This stimulates a desire to read more and better books. These 
exercises were well attended and enjoyed by all present. 

In June it was necessary for Miss Kathryne Mansfield, our 
school nurse, to resign her position with us, to accept a higher 
one in the city. This we regret, as Miss Mansfield's work was 
of a very high quality. We were however most fortunate in se- 
curing the services of Miss Catherine Austin of Belchertown, 
who comes to us highly recommended, as one who has had ex- 
cellent experience and training for her work. 

We are greatly pleased to have with us once again Mrs. 
Grace D. Beaumont as supervisor of music, after an absence of 
several months, during which absence we were successful in se- 
curing the services of Miss Alice Wilder, and thereby continue 
the music instruction unbroken. 

We have had schools No. 1 and 2 painted inside and outside 
of each building one coat, also blackboards refinished, wliich was 
greatly needed. 

We ask that the report of the Superintendent, School Nurse 
and Music Supervisor be carefully read. 

The committee ask any parent, guardian or teacher, who have 
problems relative to the schools they wish solved, to visit the 
Superintendent with the same, as we can assure you, they will al- 
ways find a sympathetic, helpful advisor and one quick to act, in 
Mr. Knight. Much credit is due Mr. Knight for his hearty co- 
operation in bringing the schools of Enfield to a higher stand- 
ard. 

We respectfully ask that parents and guardians sign and re- 
turn promptly to the teacher the slip sent them, explaining any 
absence or tardiness of the pupil which is a state requirement 
as found in the School Laws. 



58 



The committee at this time wishes to extend to the citizens of 
Enfield their hearty thanks and appreciation for their cooper- 
ation and assistance in any way, for the welfare of the schools, 
and for the support given by their generous appropriation and 
goodwill. 

Respectfully submitted, 
for School Committee 

INEZ L. BROWN, Sec'y 



Report of Superintendent of Schools 



To the Members of the Enfield School Committee: 

My sixth report and the twenty-eighth in the series of reports 
made by union superintendents will differ but little from those 
which have been made during- the past few years. It will chron- 
icle certain changes in our teaching- force and a diminution in 
the school population, but, happily, it can record no lowering- of 
standards or quality of work done. 

At the close of the school year, the resignations of Miss Flor- 
ence Ross and Miss Jessie Elphinstone had been received. Miss 
Ross had acted as principal and teacher of grades seven and 
eight for four years, during which time she had become closely 
identified with the life of the community and had proven herself 
to be a teacher and leader of marked ability. The same qual- 
ities characterized the work of Miss Elphinstone as teacher of 
grades five and six. Their places are being ably filled by Miss 
Audrey Marshall and Miss Mary Neuman, both of whom are 
North Adams Normal graduates. 

In August the resignation of. Miss Kathryn Mansfield was 
received. Miss Mansfield had been responsible for the health 
work in the Enfield schools since October, 1927. During that 
time she accomplished much, due to her energy and tactfulness. 
Miss Catherine Austin of Belchertown was engaged to take up 
the work formerly in charge of Miss Mansfield. Miss Austin 
came to us with a varied training and a broad experience. 

We have been glad to welcome back as Supervisor of Music, 



60 



Mrs. Grace Beaumont. It will be recalled that she was given a 
leave of absence for 1930-31. 

Special days have been observed in a fitting manner, and last 
spring the teachers were privileged to visit the schools of Wal- 
tham where many valuable suggestions were gained. In No- 
vember, through the courtesy of Mrs. Hammond and Mrs. Shef- 
field, the seventh and eighth grades were taken to Pelham Hill 
and thence through Pelham Hollow to the site of the old "Con- 
key Tavern" which was identified with Shay, leader of Shay'i 
Rebellion. 

The following is the enrolment as of October first. 1931. to- 
gether with that of 1930 and 1929.

The number f pupils attending high school is smaller than 
in previous years, and next year the high school enrolment will 
be c till smaller. 

To the school library has been added "Lands and Peoples" 
and the set of encyclopedias called "The Book of Knowledge." 
The latter set is especially valuable for general work, while on 
the other hand "Lands and Peoples" is very helpful in the study 
of geography a nd current events. 

Your superintendent wishes to commend the splendid spirit 



6i 



of cooperation existing at this time. The teachers are enthusi- 
astic and anxious to serve. Parents are urged to visit the 
schools, so that a common understanding may be reached. 

To the teachers, the nurse, parents and committee does the 
superintendent wish to express his appreciation of the helpful- 
ness shown at all times. 

Respectfully submitted, 

HERMAN C. KNIGHT 



Report of Supervisor of Music 



51 Amity St., Amherst, Mass. 
Jan. 20, 1932 
Mr. Herman C. Knight 

Belcher town, Mass. 
My dear Mr. Knight: 

Following is a report of music work in the Enfield schools. 

This report covers only the period beginning with September, 
1931, at which time I resumed supervision of the music in En- 
field. 

Work has been carried on in all grades as nearly according to 
standard as possible. We have tried to give the children a good 
technical foundation for reading music, and, at the same time, 
develop love for and joy in singing. 

A course in music appreciation should be given along with 
the regular singing work. Since this would necessitate the pur- 
chase of considerable material, it has not been started. How- 
ever, it is to be hoped that such a course may be started soon. 

The teachers have been efficient and cooperative and deserve 
a large share of credit for the music work. 

Respectfully submitted, 

GRACE D. BEAUMONT 

Supervisor of Music 



Report of School Nurse 



January 1, 1932 
Suft. Herman C. Knight 

Belchertowti, Mass. 
Dear Suferintendent Knight: 

In September I accepted the position of school nurse for the 
town of Enfield. 

I submit my report for the past months: 

Number of visits to schools 28 

Visits to homes 7 

Contagious diseases reported: 

Chicken pox 1 

The pupils were given individual inspection twice and 
weighed twice. 

Nutrition authorities advise us that the steady gain in 
weight in a child be considered the laim rather than that any 
definite weight be held as correct. 

In November 55 pupils were weighed, three of whom are los- 
ing weight. These pupils were given individual instruction re- 
garding correct diet and were urged to take cod liver oil during 
the winter months because it confers immunity to respiratory 
infections. The child who is losing weight is prone to illness of 
this type. 

Health education was given the pupils by classroom talks and 
by the distribution of suitable literature through the courtesy of 
the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company. A soap powder and 



64 



a container has been installed in the lavatory of the lower 
grades, to replace the bar of soap formerly used.

assisting, is as follows:

The parents are asked to consider the notices of the defects 
w r hich will be sent them not merely as the recognition of phys- 
ical defects found by the School Physician at the time of ex- 
amination but rather as a warning of possible future disability 
if they remain uncorrected. 

I thank you, Mr. Knight, Dr. Segur, teachers, and parents, 
for the assistance given me in carrying on the health program 
so well organized by Miss Mansfield. 

Respectfully submitted for your consideration, 

CATHERINE AUSTIN, R. N.
